For the past couple of months, I have been working on a side project with several colleagues from my department.
In short, it's a web interface to our university's timetable system, the (infamous) ADE.
For various reasons, we, the staff, are… After a long hiatus, here is the third part of my series of posts about Git for Mathematicians 🙂.
I explain the basics of how one would go about using Git to write a math paper.
If you have not read the previous parts of the series, you can find… I just implemented a dark mode for my website!
I saw that it was quite easy to do with TailwindCSS so I took a shot at it.
To see it, enable dark mode in your browser/OS settings.
If you don't want to do that and you still want to see how it looks… You may have noticed that the layout of my website has almost completely changed.
I have completely reworked the way it's rendered!
I have had this… This post is the second in a series in which I will try to explain how to use Git to write papers, with an audience of professional mathematicians in mind.
The first part, which was about why one would want to use Git, is here.
Let us now dive into… With online teaching, I have to find ways to make many processes go faster, as otherwise teaching takes an inordinate amount of time compared to traditional teaching (and my salary doesn't change...).
I have already written about automating exam… This post is the first in a series in which I will try to explain how to use Git to write papers, with an audience of professional mathematicians in mind.
I know that there are a lot of material online about learning Git, but as far as I can tell… Like many people, I have been teaching online for some time now.
In order to help students get an idea of how well they understand the material, I have been giving them and grading weekly homework (keep in mind that it is not common in French… Several people have asked me for my LaTeX template to write letters, so I guess I might as well put it up on my webpage.
It uses the scrlttr2 package.
I think the markup is relatively self-explanatory. The template expects a copy of your signature… tl;dr: /a2b to get a .bib from arXiv entries. Update May 19th, 2021: New URL. Have you ever wanted to create a bib entry from an arXiv preprint?
There are a few tools available, including one provided by arXiv (click on "NASA ADS" in the… I dug up the tiny program I wrote to find minimal surfaces with fixed boundary in 2011 for the "grandes écoles" entrance exams.
Ah, the memories... It's available here , along with some pictures.
It's written in OCaml, of course!
To compile it… My website is now available in French ! It is possible to change the language using the menu. A big part of the content is translated, blog posts excepted -- they remain in English. Update May 2021: The website is no longer available in French… Hi! You may have noticed the new URL and the new design. Now everything (my home page + my blog) is in one place, powered by Hugo and its Academic theme . I was a bit fed up with Jekyll and its long building times, and I wanted something a bit… Maybe you (I don't know who reads this anyway) haven't noticed, but this blog has a new URL: operad.fr idrissi.eu ! I splurged and got a domain name. The blog is (for now) still accessible via the old GitHub URL, but this may change at some point… Hi! If you're reading this, it means I've finally decided to upload my blog, and this is my first post. Me If you don't know me (how did you get here?!) I'm Najib Idrissi, a doctoral student in math at Université Lille 1 . You can also read the…
