Math/Maths Podcast: 5136 miles of mathematics

A conversation about mathematics between the UK and USA from Pulse-Project.org. Peter Rowlett in Nottingham calls Samuel Hansen in Las Vegas and the pair chat about math and maths that has been in the news, that they've noticed and that has happened to them.

A conversation about mathematics between the UK and USA from Pulse-Project.org. Due to non-intersecting availability, this week Samuel presents a short podcast alone. He talks about what's probably been in the news; he gives a taster of the upcoming third episode of Relatively Prime, Chinook: "the uplifting story of a little computer and its coming of age in the world of competitive checkers"; and, he gets a bit soppy and American. Aw, shucks.
