40th Carnival of Mathematics

October 3rd, 2008 | Categories: general math | Tags:

Just as I was about to give up on the Carnival of Mathematics, up pops the long awaited 40th Edition over at Staring at Empty Pages. Lots of juicy mathematical tidbits have been included for your enjoyment including some interesting stuff on the factorial function, generating functions, Euclid’s Elements and a whole lot more.

I am a huge fan of the carnival of Maths and have hosted it twice myself so far. In my opinion, it’s a great way of discovering new maths-related blogs and new mathematical ideas. The carnival also helps foster a sense of community among us all. One thing that it desperately needs though is new hosts so please contact Alon and volunteer for the job.

The 41st carnival will be hosted by the guys over at 360. Do your blog a favour and submit your latest maths-related post to the carnival.

    I’d be interested in hosting a carnival, but I’m not sure about the Alon link. I went there, and there hasn’t been any activity on the site since February 2007 and I didn’t see a contact link. Do you have other contact info? Thanks.
