The Signal Beat: A Math Reading Room

The Signal Beat is a math oriented blog with popular-style articles for a range of audiences. It could, for example, principles of epidemic modeling to general readers, matrix transformations to programmers, or category theory to math undergraduates. The aim is to develop it into a coherent library of tutorials.

The Signal Beat is offered in a spirit of outreach. In these times of pandemic, climate threat and attacks on science, an informed public is truly needed. A broad-based culture of science would be a natural complement and support for the activity of professional scientists. Every good scientist had a mother and a father, and so generally speaking their education made a contribution as well.

For discussion purposes, these articles are cross-posted to the Azimuth Blog.

Submissions for guest contributions are invited!
