Hey all, I’m just going to do a bit of a promotion for a friend of mine (@Locus_of_Ctrl on Twitter) who has recently started his own blog on mathematical biology. So far he has two posts, and they are packed with information. The delightful thing for me is that they’re packed with information on different mathematical problems. Locus introduces you to the history and theory of the problem, then walks you through the math. For dumb-dumbs like me who generally need a whole day to process even just one of these papers, it’s a huge relief to have someone tell you what each step means. I definitely encourage you to check it out.
Additionally, Locus is in my Discord server book club for anyone interested in joining the conversation there and reading books with us. So far we’ve read EO Wilson’s Sociobiology, Robert Triver’s Natural Selection and Social Theory, and most recently Peter Turchin’s Ages of Discord. Just reach out to me on my contact page or on twitter for more information.
