In the first of what I hope is an ongoing series of interviews with fellow mathematicians, here is my conversation with Richard J. Nowakowski. We sometimes just call him RJN for short. Richard works on graph theory and combinatorial game theory at Dalhousie University, where he is a University Research Professor. He completed his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees under […]

CanaDAM’17 is underway at Ryerson, and tonight, Jordan Ellenberg is giving the Public Lecture on the cap set conjecture. I’m reposting my interview with him in honor of that occasion. Enjoy! *** Jordan Ellenberg is the John D. MacArthur and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He works in… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Jordan Ellenberg

I met Lisa Jeffrey in Ottawa this February, where we worked together on the NSERC Evaluation Group for Mathematics & Statistics. We walked back to the hotel from dinner one evening and discussed her field of symplectic geometry, which was largely a mystery to me. She described the symplectic camel and I knew then I had to learn… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Lisa Jeffrey

Barry Mazur is the Gerhard Gade University Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Harvard University. Barry is one the world’s leading experts on number theory, and his work focuses on Diophantine geometry and elliptic curves. His research in topology is also legendary, and he settled the generalized Schoenflies problem as a doctoral student. He is highly awarded,… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Barry Mazur

Richard K. Guy is the only mathematician I know working at age 100. A professor at University of Calgary, Richard is an expert in geometry, number theory, graph theory, and he is especially known for his contributions to combinatorial game theory. A prolific author with over 300 papers, he has worked with the greats such as Paul… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Richard K. Guy
