Further july items

[Posted on july 9, 2016.]

Spotted recently :

  • the results of the arXiv survey (previously discussed on this blog) are out and interesting (in particular the share of respondents below 30 is higher than I would have expected), hopefully the new search tools in particular will be ready by the end of the year
  • by the way, the extra digit in the identifier still hasn’t been needed, but it is getting close reaching 09644 last month after a record of 09792 in may
  • the paper that Shinichi Mochizuki produced last year has now been published, and there’s a rumor by David Hansen that the 4 original ones have been accepted
  • the MSRI summer school on the McKay conjecture starts next week
  • the youtube channel of CIRM has a playlist dedicated to talks related to the forthcoming 7th ECM,   while the channel of IHÉS has one for the june conference of its Trimestre Ondes Non Linéaires
  • the 2016 IMO takes place next week, maybe an occasion for a new mini-polymath
  • as it happens, the coldest place in the solar system is named after Charles Hermite
