LaTeX in this blog!

We can use some amount of \LaTeX in this blog. Just put any math command between $ signs, with the word “latex” (followed by a space) right after the first $.

Thus, for instance, if I write this:

$latex \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac1{n^2} = \frac{\pi^2}6$,

you will see that:

\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac1{n^2} = \frac{\pi^2}6.

Of course, only basic commands will work. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Rigidity blog! This is the place to announce talks, request talks, ask questions, or just comment away.

This site is destined to remain completely informal. Even if you plan to explain your latest idea — or doubt — to just one colleague, please consider announcing it here: a few more guests might just show up.
