Inside matter, we’ve seen that the polarization and magnetization give rise to bound charges and bound currents. The earlier results applied in the electrostatic and magnetostatic cases, respectively, so we’d like to generalize these to get the corresponding equations in […]
Evelyn Lamb adds to the conversation that Jeff Leek and I had a few months ago. It’s a topic that’s worth returning to, in light of our continuing discussions regarding the crisis of criticism in science.

Within the last two months I had the privilege of teaching a week-long Analysis of Boolean Functions course at two different summer schools. In July I was at the (First Annual?) Swedish Summer School in Computer Science. This was wonderfully organized by KTH faculty Per Austrin, Johan Håstad, and Jakob Nordström, and took place [...]
I was just at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion (Figure 1), which is celebration of old-school steam technology. As always, it was a great show. The name of the reunion is a bit of a misnomer in that the … Continue reading →
