Readers are welcome to the Math Scholar blog.

For over seven years, noted mathematician Jonathan M. Borwein and the present editor published essays, news items, quotations and book reviews to our Math drudge blog (236 posts in total). Our posts have ranged from notices of new mathematical discoveries to exploring the meaning of recent discoveries in physics, biology and computer science.

Sadly, Jonathan Borwein passed away on 2 August 2016. As the editor wrote the day of his passing,

Jon’s passing is an incalculable loss to the field of mathematics in general, and to experimental mathematics in particular. Jon is arguably the world’s leading researcher in the field of experimental mathematics, and his loss will be very deeply felt. We will be reading his papers and following his example for decades to come.

In the wake of Jon’s passing, it seems appropriate to end the Math drudge blog. Thus no new posts will be made to that site.

Readers are instead are welcome to the new Math Scholar blog. In this forum, the editor and some other guest writers will explore many of the same themes mentioned above, as well as some new topics that emerge in our ever-changing world.
