Carnival of Math 49 at 360

February 14, 2009 pm28 7:54 pm

Ξ at 360‘s done quite a nice job with the newest carnival of mathematics.

And let me recommend the long post from a blog called bit player. The entry, Division by Zero, is about using computer mapping to find the continental divide. If you like maps (and who amongst us does not?) you’ll find it fascinating. He made a great map almost ten years ago, published in the American Scientist, among other places, but with better data, new map… you’ll need to read.

But there’s also a nice discussion of the number 49, and an array of topics from a book review to flake fractals to an interesting try at correlating Ottoman wars with the origin of the sultan’s mother.

Enjoy.
