I recently was told by a reader that I made Linvin (the protagonist in my books) “Too perfect” and that she rooted for bad things to happen to him throughout “Quest for the Red Sapphire.” I guess that’s one way of keeping a reader’s attention. Then I considered whether or not she was right. On on... Read more of this blog post »

Terence Tao Terence Tao's blog:


Let {P(z) = z^n + a_{n-1} z^{n-1} + \dots + a_0} be a monic polynomial of degree {n} with complex coefficients. Then by the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, we can factor {P} as


\displaystyle P(z) = (z-z_1) \dots (z-z_n) \ \ \ \ \ (1)


for some complex zeroes {z_1,\dots,z_n} (possibly with repetition).



Now suppose we evolve {P} with respect to time by heat flow, creating a function {P(t,z)} of two variables for which


\displaystyle \partial_t P(t,z) = \partial_{zz} P(t,z). \ \ \ \ \ (2)
