to my homepage. I am a mathematician at Aalborg
University, Department of Mathematical Sciences. My research these days is in the new field: Geometry and Topology with applications in Computer Science. I made a poster presenting our work. My first ever Beamer poster...
If you want to know more about me, you may check my publications. via the Aalborg University listing. Notice that this list contains everything from newspaper articles to scientific publications.
Numb3rs
I have been the main author of the Danish blog Numb3rs. The blog is in Danish and I try to explain the maths in the TV-series Numb3rs.

Some of my favourite links
Science in general
Not Exactly Rocket Science. Ed Yong is smart, funny and one of the best Science Writers in the World. The Naked Scientists Science articles, podcasts,... Bad Science blog about the problematic relation between science and the media, "alternative" treatments,.. Sense about science. Lots of resources in particular on health and medicine.
Mathematics
Plus Magazine Lots of articles on math and its applications. Understanding Uncertainty About risk and how we really get this wrong in everyday life. Main author: David Spiegelhalter, Professor of the Public Understanding of risk
Buy a Klein Bottle here. They even have a Klein bottle hat and Klein bottle beer mugs and they mail them to Europe too.
Hilbert Problems A list and an explanation of the 23 problems posed by David Hilbert at the International Congress of Mathematicians 1900
A Canadian magazine on mathematics. Written for highschool students. It is called Pi in the sky
For some really interesting and well written articles about mathematics written by Keith Devlin check Devlins Angle. The newest columns are here.
Harvey Mudd College has a list of Fun Facts about
mathematics. Some of them are more fun than others, but see for yourself.
The American Mathematical Societies have a Mathematical Awareness Month. Pi. A movie which is a bit to advanced for my taste (not on the math part, but as a movie...). It did, however, get very nice reviews and won a price at the Sundance festival. So if your taste in movies is not as primitive as mine, maybe you will love it... The Geometry Junkyard. This page has links to lots of interesting pages on geometry. Algebraic Topology Discussion List NRICH Mathematics at different levels: discussions, exercises, projects, staffroom for teachers etc. The MIT report. If you did not know about this report - read it now. Proceedings of the 9'th meeting of European Women in Mathematics. We try to write clear articles for these proceedings- you can have a look and see if we succeed in that... Math Forum Home Page The Geometry Center Welcome Page Dave Rusin's mathematical Atlas.
