Math FAQ

Back when I was a grad student, I would get asked weird questions about what I did all day. One day, after someone asked me if I worked on adding really big numbers together or something, I wrote a Math FAQ to answer questions about what mathematicians did. The link is to a copy of the FAQ that is being maintained by Sarah Marie Belcastro, a math professor at Xavier.

One thought on “Math FAQ

  1. The FAQ is starting to show its age. Haven’t there been a number of advances since you wrote the answer to the first question? Is 7 digits really enough?

    Also, is Chalabi famous enough to make the list?
