Link for the week(ish): Numberphile

The Link for the Week hasn’t been very active recently, but here’s something to make up for the drought. The Numberphile website contains dozens of short videos on mathematical topics — most of them accessible without a lot of background knowledge, but some of them pointing towards much deeper questions in mathematics and how we use or abuse it. Definitely a much better way to waste time on Youtube than watching humorous cat videos!

PS: Thank you to Vincent Keenan (formerly of Strathclyde and now of Heriot-Watt) for the tip-off!
