The English of Mathematics
I recently gave a talk on the english of mathematics, and it included some fun topics which (since I wasted so much time coming up with them...), I thought I'd share with my friends at PlanetMath.
My talk slides and all the fun stuff generated is here:
The first fun thing is a list of "randomly generated" non-words which somehow SOUND mathematical in nature.
The second is using N-gram models of english to generate random mathematical sentences.
Finally, motivated by Rooter, I modified their code to produce abstracts and first pages of randomly generated mathematical papers. I have a sample on the page, which I think is pretty fun to read through.
I had a lot of fun working on this stuff, so I hope you at least get a kick out of reading it. Feel free to respond with any comments.
