Thank you!

Thanks to all my online friends for the many Birthday wishes. I'm truly overwhelmed! 

I think I'll celebrate by renewing my commitment to this Blog and Web Site.

If there's anything Geeky you would like me to Blog about, please get in touch.



Race To The Stones - 100km (RTTS)

Morning all

Just to let you know that I have signed up for the 100km Race To The Stones sponsored by my employer, Dixons Carphone!

In the words of the organisers . . . 

"Take on the challenge of 100km on foot along the oldest path in Britain
The Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones is a fully supported 100km route following in the footsteps of Romans, Vikings, farmers and traders along the iconic Ridgeway. You will pass Iron Age forts, ancient burial chambers, cross the mighty Thames and the mystical down-lands of Salisbury plain on your way to the finish line next to the 3,000-year-old stone circle at Avebury.
Complete the 100km non-stop or break it into two days staying at our overnight basecamp. It’s suitable for elite runners through to keen walkers.

I must be as mad as a hatter! :-)

Looking forward to it.

Race To The Stones 2015

As you can see, it's for a good cause. I need to raise £500 sponsorship for my Charity, if you can help, please see my Sponsorship Page below.

Thanks for reading.

Current reading

I've spent all my life being fascinated by mathematics, especially Real Numbers.

A few weeks ago, I decided that I needed to formalise almost 40 years of ponderings.

As I have said before, the Riemann Hypothesis has intrigued me for some time

There is a bizarre juxtaposition contained within my approach to this problem. It may be easier to find the answer than understand the question!

IMHO, to truly grasp the question, one would have to be at the edge of the envelope, as it were, in statistics, complex functions, differential and integral calculus, imaginary numbers, quantum mechanics - not forgetting Euclidian and non-Euclidian geometries!!

Perhaps this is why no-one has yet proved the Riemann hypothesis either way!

The 3 books I'm currently reading are these. I've presented them below in the order in which I am reading.

1. The Music of the Primes: Why an Unsolved Problem in Mathematics Matters ISBN 9781841155807

2. A Mathematician's Apology - CANTO ISBN 9780521427067

3. An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers Sixth Edition G. H. Hardy and E. M. Wright Edited by Roger Heath-Brown, Joseph Silverman, and Andrew Wiles ISBN 9780198531715

If you too have an interest in mathematics, you could do far worse than hunting down these 3 books.

What I've been up to . . .

I realise I've been absent of late as regards my website. I've become so engrossed in the Riemann Hypothesis that I've been reticent in Posting.

Professor David Hilbert sums up my unseen passion rather eloquently.

"This conviction of the solvability of every mathematical problem is a powerful incentive to the worker. We hear within us the perpetual call: There is the problem. Seek its solution. You can find it by pure reason, for in mathematics there is no ignorabimus.  "

Currently reading 3 books, whose details I will Post shortly.
