Math has no color Mathematics has no color. Mathematics has no gender or sex. Mathematical truths are universal, and may be discovered by anyone with sufficient talent and perseverance. Mathematics doesn’t care how much money you have in your bank account or what style of shoes you wear. That’s what I would like to believe. The truth is… Read More Review of Hidden Figures

Ingrid Daubechies is the James B. Duke Professor of Mathematics and Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. Her doctoral work was in physics, focusing on the mathematics of quantum mechanics. She is best known for her discovery of compactly supported continuous wavelets, now called Daubechies wavelets. Her work has found broad application to signal and image processing,… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Ingrid Daubechies
