Go home, p-value, you're drunk

In this talk we will examine a favourite mathematical object of mine, the NaturalLogz.

I will prove a lower bound on the size of sum-product sets in finite fields by using tools from spectral graph theory.

The universe is almost as lazy as me.

Hi. I'm food, and I'd like to introduce you to me.

Monoids monoids monoids monoids monoids

Learn how to live life with sublinear regret.

I'll describe Yoneda's lemma and it's connection to universal properties. I might also talk about its use in Algebraic geometry. This talk should be accessible to anyone with basic 347 level knowledge and can serve as a first exposure to category theory.

The chromatic number of K(r, s) is s - 2r +2.

Dismissing the use of p-values rigorously.
