My New Math Project: Calculus
Now that I’ve let the whole world know this, I have to follow through on my plan. It is difficult to embarrass me, unless I deliberately set up a situation that uses embarrassment on a global scale, as a selfmotivational … Continue reading
Proof: An Infinite Number of Irrational Numbers Can Be Found Between Any Two Rational Numbers On the Number Line.
[This theorem was proven long ago, in other ways, but this is my way to prove it.] Let x and y be two rational numbers on the number line. Since both x and y are rational, both x and y … Continue reading

A Zome Torus, Before and After Adding Dodecahedra, As a Model for a Pulsar’s Accretion Disk and Radiation Jets
I’ve been using Zometools, available at http://www.zometool.com, to build interesting geometrical shapes since long before I started this blog. I recently found this: a 2011 photograph of myself, holding a twisting Zome torus. While I don’t remember who was holding the … Continue reading
