The talk that I gave at Greek Stochastics γ has now been posted to the list of talks on my website here. The talk, entitled “The Paired Product Estimator for normalizing constants of Gibbs distribution” details a method for approximation of partition functions that is markedly faster than previously known methods.
The second issue of the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics is now online! As usual, it contains several great pieces about mathematicians doing mathematics, two book reviews, more poetry, and for the first time a short fiction piece. Many thanks to my coeditor Gizem Karaali, who did most of the work getting this issue out this last month. The issue can be accessed here.
