Below are the posts on this blogged sorted into their natural types.

A computation a day

These posts are largely focused around just computing things, with little focus on background or intuition (outside of any very relevant to the problem).

A Computation a Day: Compactly Supported Cohomology

A Computation a Day: the Brauer Group of a Number Ring

A Computation a Day: a Pullback Pushforward

A Computation a Day: a (Harder) Pullback Pushforward

Weird examples

These are usually very short posts writing down some sort of example of ‘weird’ behavior. These usually have very little in the way of background and/or intuition.

Weird Example: Pullback of Noetherian is Not Noetherian

Weird Example: Pullback of Very Ample by Finite is not Very Ample

Short blurbs

These are just short posts about something random. Once again, no real intention of discussing background material and/or intuition.

The Nullstellensatz

Topological Genus Agrees with Arithmetic Genus

What Information is Contained in an ‘Infinitesimal Neighborhood’ of a Point?

Classifying One-dimensional Algebraic Groups

Hodge Symmetry in Characteristic Zero

Line Bundles on the Circle

A Class Field Theoretic Phenomenon

Morphisms of a ‘Set Theoretic Nature’

Kummer Theory and the Weak Mordell-Weil Theorem

Maps from Simply Connected Projective Varieties to Curves


These are usually longer posts, usually with the intent of giving an introduction and/or overview of a particular topic. These usually focus on giving sufficiently much background and intuition as to elucidate whatever their subject matter may be.
