Another of my Graph Drawing papers is online today: "Planar Induced Subgraphs of Sparse Graphs", arXiv:1408.5939, with Cora Borradaile and her student Pingan Zhu. It's about finding large planar subgraphs in arbitrary graphs; in the version of the problem we study, we want the planar subgraph to be an induced subgraph, so the goal is to find as large a subset of vertices as possible with the property that all edges connecting them can be drawn planarly. Equivalently, we want to delete as few […]

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.) (C)Copyright 2014, C. Burke.Would becoming purely kinetic be realizing your potential? This is a new thing that I'm trying, (x, why?) minis. "Mini" as in "minimum", so it has a mathematical context, along with "minimum artwork, background and coloring". I thought about calling them "quickies", but that lacked the math connection and, frankly, this wasn't as quick as I would have liked. Happy Joe Burke Day!, the anniversary of my father's

Following this entry, Yoshua Bengio just wrote the following on his Google+ stream (I have a added a few links and reshaped the text for clearer reading):There was an interesting debate on deep learning at Technion a couple of days ago: http://nuit-blanche.blogspot.fr/2014/08/is-deep-learning-final-frontier-and-end.html I wasn't there but I wished I had been to clarify a number of points. So I wrote this message to the members of the debate panel (sorry, it's pretty

This semester I am running all three of my classes as “modified Moore method” courses. (The amount of modification depends on the audience and aims of the course.) During our first meetings, I worked hard to set the right tone and expectations. We even took time to practice what class would look like. But then […]

Primary Math Toolkits should be built over the year adding tools as they are introduced. In the beginning of the year, start with the tools that were introduced in the prior grade. Here are some suggestions for toolkits: 1 container (Ziploc bag, box, big toolbox for a table of students) 1 double dice 2 different […]
