Today I want to urge you to visit several sites in addition to my blog. For example, there is the recent announcement of 2014 Fields Medal (equivalent to a Nobel prize) winners -- the four winners include the first female mathematician (Maryam Mirzakhani) ever to be selected as a Fields Medalist (equivalent to a Nobel Prize) and a mathematician who loves poetry (Manjul Bhargava).
With the help of a "Google Alert" I found a YouTube video of Alexandria Marie reading "The Mathematics of Heartbreak" at a Dallas Poetry Slam. A link in an email from Texas computer scientist, Dylan Shell, alerted me to these mathematical lyrics (new words for old tunes) in a mathbabe posting by Cathy O'Neill.
As we have been floating from topic to topic, it may be apt to end with the final stanza of my relevantly titled poem:
from Floating by JoAnne Growney
My best dream is floating
from number to number, but between two
are more. Infinity in a moment.
The complete poem is available in my 2010 collection, Red Has No Reason (Plain View Press, 2010); it also is found in the anthology, Strange Attractors: Poems of Love and Mathematics (A K Peters, 2008).
