Mrs.B, were you told that girls don’t do math or algebra?

My sister, in fourth grade when I was starting college, loved the simple math problems I asked her (which two numbers when added give 12 and when subtracted give 2?). One year later, in fifth grade, she hated them. I was sure someone told her she wasn’t supposed to like math.

I have a grade 10 education, & algebra was my worst subject.

see Chelsea Walton's "An Invitation to Noncommutative Algebra" on the arXiv today! A brief tour of the subject aimed at advanced undergrad and beginning grad students:

Comment by Mrs.B on August 19, 2018 at 7:00pm

I was lousy at algebra.

Comment by Doone on August 19, 2018 at 6:58pm

Although the Weyl algebra is very noncommutative, one can still find commuting things in it. (This algebra is based on the Heisenberg relation between position and momentum operators in mechanics, or between creation and annihilation operators.)

ICYMI: Examine evolution over the course of years or centuries, and you’ll find that it progresses much more quickly than it does over geologic time. Now the oldest viruses on the planet are enabling scientists to calibrate this evolutionary clock.

That almost looks like a painting.

California Fires as Seen From the Space Station

The Earth, in all its majesty and its tragedy, is the subject of images taken aboard the International Space Station. This image of the Carr and Ferguson fires was captured by European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst (@Astro_Alex), on August 3, 2018, from the station.
"California burning. These fires are frightening to watch, even from space. Here's a shout-out from space to all firefighters on this planet, my former colleagues. Stay safe my friends!" Gerst, a geophysicist and volcanologist, wrote on his Twitter account.
