In a renewed effort to stay connected with the research community, I’ve decided to start maintaining my blog again. As step 1, I retired the old name “proof roof” (an homage to Erdős’s “another roof, another proof”) in favour of the new name “random permutations”, which is more personal, and a little less cartoonish.
I chose the new name for two reasons. First, a lot of my research has been about random permutations, or other properties of the symmetric group, so I guess as mathematical objects they must mean something to me. Second, it suggests that my blog covers the same ground repeatedly in different words, which I find funny.
As step 2 I migrated from Blogger to WordPress. My main reason for doing so is the -integration. For whatever reason, WordPress’s latex display seems to be cleaner and more robust.
I plan to use this revitalized platform mainly to post at random about whatever problems or conjectures I currently find interesting. I hope you find something interesting here, and if you do please comment! With some luck maybe we can combine ideas and prove something.
