#### Our latest paper: "Factorization and criticality in finite interacting spin systems under a nonuniform magnetic field"

Our latest paper just got published by Physical Review Letter! Let me briefly explain what our manuscript is about:

*Factorization and criticality in finite interacting spin systems under a nonuniform magnetic field…* 231 more words

#### The Summer 2017 Mathematics A To Z: Sárközy's Theorem

Gaurish, of **For the love of Mathematics,** gives me another chance to talk number theory today. Let’s see how that turns out.

# Sárközy’s Theorem.

I have two pieces to assemble for this. 1,115 more words

#### MPM1D - Fractions and LCM 2017-09-11

On Friday I gave you a page of work to refresh your math brain. We spent today looking at a bunch of those questions, and then talking about adding and subtracting fractions. 166 more words

#### The Summer 2017 Mathematics A To Z: Gaussian Primes

Once more do I have Gaurish to thank for the day’s topic. (There’ll be two more chances this week, providing I keep my writing just enough ahead of deadline.) This one doesn’t touch category theory or topology. 1,352 more words
