One of the most common questions people ask in mathematics what books they should read to learn a particular topic. While I am by no means an expert, I have used plenty of different texts throughout my undergraduate years, and so I’ve taken some time to pick out my favorites for various topics.
I also host some notes that I’ve compiled from previous classes.
Tools of Choice
I spend quite a bit of time at the terminal, so here are some of my favorite tools:
- Distribution: Arch Linux
- Terminal: lxterminal
- Shell: zsh
- Window Manager: xmonad
- Desktop Environment: xfce4
- Multiplexer: tmux
- Text Editor: vim
- Browser: chromium
Here are a few more esoteric programs that I find pretty useful:
|x2go||A faster alternative to VNC for remote X sessions.|
|seafile||A self-hosted file storage replacement for services like DropBox.|
|picard||A great utility for properly tagging and organizing music files. (It just works!)|
|calibre||Perhaps the best tools for managing collections of PDF books.|
A while back, I put together a page to search and filter through all of the code I’ve written on Github, based on the names of the projects and the language the code was written in. I plan to do a small writeup on how this can easily be done using Jekyll’s Github Authentication gem, but in the meantime you can still checkout the page!
