## Diversity and mathematics

“Diversity” has become an important concept in the modern university, affecting admissions, faculty hiring, and administrative appointments. In the paper “Groups of diverse problem solvers can outperform groups of high-ability problem solvers” [1], L. Hong and S. Page claim to … Continue reading

## The Slow Science Manifesto

THE SLOW SCIENCE MANIFESTO We are scientists. We don’t blog. We don’t twitter. We take our time. Don’t get us wrong—we do say yes to the accelerated science of the early 21st century. We say yes to the constant flow of peer-review … Continue reading

## Two URLs

Peter Higgs: I wouldn’t be productive enough for today’s academic system Peter Higgs, the British physicist who gave his name to the Higgs boson, believes no university would employ him in today’s academic system because he would not be considered “productive” … Continue reading
