Math3ma + PBS Infinite Series!
Hi everyone! Here's a bit of exciting news: As of today, I'll be extending my mathematical voice from the blogosphere to the videosphere! In addition to Math3ma, you can now find me over at PBS Infinite Series, a YouTube channel dedicated to the wonderful world of mathematics.
Infinite Series (a part of PBS Digital Studios) was formally hosted by Kelsey Houston-Edwards, a PhD candidate at Cornell University. Over the past year Kelsey has written and hosted 45 marvelous videos on a wide variety of topics. Here are a few!
As Kelsey announced in her latest video, The Heat Equation, she'll be using the upcoming year to finish her dissertation. (Best of luck, Kelsey!) Physicist Gabe Perez-Giz -- former host of PBS SpaceTime -- and I will step in as hosts for Season 2.
The first two episodes, including today's "The Multiplication Multiverse," were inspired by recent posts here on the blog, and I had a lot of fun finding ways to pare down research-level mathematics. There is a vast world of beautiful, enticing math that's often hidden behind lofty language. But it's far too exciting to remain hidden! With that said, I sincerely hope that Season 2 of Infinite Series will continue to serve as a warm invitation into the wonders of mathematics.
So without further ado, here's the first episode. It's the first of a two-part series. I'll be sure to post the second video here once it's live. And after this mini-series, Gabe's got some exciting things to share too!
Be sure to subscribe to the channel, new videos come out each Thursday!
And here's part 2!
