A Pair of Pertinent Podcasts

Filed under: Mathematical — Jim @ 12:00 pm

These have been in the queue for a while, but the BBC podcast In Our Time recently (as in the past six months) covered two more mathematical topics related to the book. The first is on http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00tt6b2, which is useful if you’re interested in having a deeper understanding of quaternions. The second is on random and pseudorandom numbers, which parallels one of the chapters in the second edition. I highly recommend the podcast in general, as well. Each show is about 45 minutes long, and features a panel of three experts on each topic moderated by Melvin Bragg.
