Ok I need MATH TO GO UP. like VERY SOON. I cant take this anymore. every DAY i am checking NO MATH, check twitter,NO MATH. I cant take this anymore,I have UNDER UNDERSTOOD, BY A LOT. it is what it is. but I need the UNDERSTANDING TO GO UP ALREADY. can @tarunchitra DO SOMETHING???

A phenomenal thread by @algo_class which I highly recommend :)

One of the reasons we computed autocorrelation functions for protein folding orientation in terms of quaternions instead of rotation matrices at @DEShawResearch was because E[R(t)R(0)]-E[R(0)^2] becomes hard to compare to Markov Chain expectations because of this 👇🏾
Take a 3D rotation uniformly at random, apply it twice to the north pole of a sphere, what's the distribution of the image? A simple argument can be made that it's uniform over the sphere, but it's wrong. math.stackexchange.com/quest…

On Spotify! 🤯 This blanket fort interview happened over a year ago and not sure I knew anything back then... but it was a fun chat nevertheless! Thank you Ben @cryo2go !
Episode 7 of the #cryo2go podcast is live! It's been a minute, so I discuss some changes in format going forward to easy the production costs. In this episode, @ZhongingAlong sits down with me to talk all things #cryoDrgn ❄️🐉 open.spotify.com/episode/7bd…

this looks fun @tarunchitra
Ken Lee and Joseph Hua, two undergraduates at Imperial, have made a HoTT game! The main objective is to prove π₁(S¹)=ℤ. It's written in cubical agda. Instructions on how to play are here thehottgameguide.readthedocs… . Remark: on ubuntu linux I installed atom and it all just worked.

This is the most ridiculous way to hide that your algorithm has exponential sample complexity in the size of your input data |S| [and is thus a somewhat useless theorem] @GuilleAngeris is crying looking at this tweet

This is a good question; I suppose the best thing to do for the protocol is to add it the vote locked tokens to a liquidity pool and have it be more than remnant/locked capital — a hybrid of veCRV and Ohm Hard part is the deposit schedule — do you deposit everything at year 5?
We're building voluntary token locking into MNGO in exchange for more voting power. If added vote power caps out at 5 years max, should someone still be allowed to lock for 100 years? Any downsides in allowing that?

I maybe think that a tapered schedule would work best — deposit less early (e.g. linear % of locked tokens) until year 20, then decay faster (quadratic/higher polynomial %). On withdraw, the protocol can withdraw the LP share and return the contents to the owner (who takes IL)

it’s thanksgiving, you’d think naming it the pi variant would be more fitting

Sometimes, one can make predictions so well that they vanish (But hopefully the anomalous fractional quantum hall stuff leads to us finding one)
In 1937, the Italian physicist Ettore Majorana proposed the existence of hypothetical fundamental particles that were their own antiparticles. No such particle has ever been seen. One year after his proposal, Majorana mysteriously disappeared. quantamagazine.org/major-qua…

Narrator: Discovering that supersymmetry exists via experiments that measure expectations of too many (3,3) Dolbeault forms might have been a mistake
The year is One Million AD. The sun is engulfed by a Dyson Sphere of pure computronium. 100% goes towards running a billion trillion OlympusDAO forks. Von Neumann probes colonize every reachable star. (3,3) memes expand across the light cone of the local cluster at 0.999c

Naming any regulation “cum-cum” to force holding requirements just seems macabre
Replying to @tarunchitra
Some EU countries have imposed holding period requirements to avoid "cum-cum" schemes (not a pun..), which avoids investors from quickly selling to a tax exempt (most often related) counterparty a few days prior to record date and buying back after.

When I told my uncle (who is a math professor in India) that Okounkov won the Fields Medal in 2006 for a result about 2D algebraic geometry, he was like, “what?! how is it still possible to find anything interesting in low dimensions” Three words: ♾-dimensional vertex algebras
Replying to @shaunmmaguire
Counter-intuitively when you live in 2d there's a much greater richness of allowed particles than in 3d or higher! Normally it's the opposite This comes from the fact that if you tie a rope around a point in 3d you can contract it, but in 2d you can't (it gets stuck)
