I am Edward Frenkel, Mathematician and Author of "Love and Math" - AMA!
I am a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley and author of the New York Times bestseller "Love and Math" which has now been published in 9 languages (with 8 more translations on the way). Two weeks ago, I earned a dubious honor as "the man who almost crashed Reddit" when my active AMA was shut down in mid-sentence. After that, the Reddit mods have kindly suggested that I redo my AMA, so I'm back!
Go ahead, Ask me Anything, and this time, pretty please, let's make sure we don't break anything. :)
Apart from the themes of love, math, applications of mathematics in today's world, and math education, I am passionate about human interactions with modern technology, and in particular, with artificial intelligence. In this regard, see the lecture I gave at the Aspen Ideas Festival two weeks ago:
UPDATE: Thank you all for your great questions. I had a lot of fun. Till next time... Sending lots of love ... and math. :)
