Join us as we spend each episode talking with a mathematical professional about their favorite result. And since the best things in life come in pairs, find out what our guest thinks pairs best with their theorem.
Episode 78 - Daina Taimina
Daina Taimina is famous for her adventures in mathematical crocheting, but her favorite theorem comes from Desargues. She also likes to travel.
Episode 77 - Tien Chih
Tien Chih loves combinatorics, which means he really loves proving things by induction. In this episode we have a good time learning about this incredibly useful technique in mathematics.
Episode 76 - Math Students of CSULA
We are joined by a group of math students at Cal State University in Los Angeles for a diverse collection of theorems and pairings.
Episode 75 - Dave Kung
We can't believe it took 75 episodes to get to the Banach-Tarski paradox, but finally Dave Kung chose it as his favorite theorem. Also, Enigma Variations.
Episode 74 - Priyam Patel
An old favorite theorem makes its third appearance on the pod, but we always like to learn new points of view. Priyam Patel likes the Brouwer Fixed Point theorem, and this time we learn how it helps classify isometries of hyperbolic space. Also, rock climbing.
Episode 73 - Courtney Gibbons
Courtney Gibbons likes isomorphism theorems. All three of them, in fact, and she wants to remind you they are due to Emmy Noether, despite most textbooks ignoring that fact. Also, bunnies.
Very interesting theorems
Very neat theorems and many kinds of mathematicians.
Learn Something New Each Episode
The hosts have on great guests, who do deep dives into their favorite theorems. The episodes range in accessibility, but there are interesting take aways from every episode.
Turned off from the beginning
What was that all about? The guest could have simply stated what it was about calculus that fascinated her and then given the Wikipedia example and that would have taken 3 minutes. The rest of the podcast is simply uninformative drivel. Thanks for wasting my time.
