This is going to be a simple post for Valentine’s Day. I’ve been doing research into Alan Turing’s work in mathematical biology. I found his work on animal patterns interesting for sure. I think one of those questions we is how the Leopard got its spots. Turing had an answer for that. Yet, what I […]
These stories talk about or mention the mathematician and WWII hero Alan Turing.
As I say in my bio, I have a mathematical muse. It seems that every few months that I get new ideas for mathematical patterns. I always want to share these new mathematical cross stitch patterns with others. Maths dovetails with so many interesting crafts like knitting, origami, or art.
One of the ways that I self-care is to design mathematical cross stitch patterns. The circumstances we are currently in require that we stay at home and social distance. It is a stressful and uncertain time all around the world. I have an anxiety disorder and depression and staying indoors it is easy to ruminate […]
I had the pleasure of visiting Bletchley Park this year. The home of the WWII code breakers. I got to see the work and legacy of one of my favorite mathematicians, Alan Turing. What I remember most about Alan Turing from my visit was his Teddy Bear. You see, as an adult Turing bought a […]
Today I want to focus on my recent trips to London. They represent some of the most significant moments of my life. I am grateful that I’ve had the means to visit other countries.
For the past few years, I’ve been working on research around writing a biography of G.H. Hardy. Hardy is a far cry from the socially awkward and shy man he appears as in anecdotes. When I look at his actions, his writing, his friendships… I can only think of him warmly.
