Further january 2017 items

[Posted on january 10, 2017.]

Another quick list:

  • yesterday László Babai announced that he could find a short workaround to restore his quasi-polynomial claim (with modifications to his arXiv paper detailed shortly). If this checks out it is a remarkable story! In any event, Harald Helfgott’s Bourbaki seminar on saturday promises to be highly interesting (live on youtube [link updated to the start of the opera-themed talk] around 4pm Paris time, that’s 10am Eastern) update: paper here.
  • the arXiv submission rates statistics are quite fascinating. I’d be very curious to know how this translates into number of individual authors.
  • several interesting new features in mathscinet, if only it was open access…
