17, 51, 72 and 73 for the maths ask thing! 🙂

17Are there any great female Mathematicians (living or dead) you would give a shout-out to?

Maryam Mirzakhani was one of the people I admired the most in the world. She had that pure joy in doing math that only true geniuses have, they say.

51 – Favorite casual math book?

The Parrot’s Theorem is super fun, plus it’s a novel. Also, The Music of the Primes by Marcus du Sautoy.

72 – Are you a fan of algorithms? If so, which are your favorite?

All the algorithms are fun to me. It doesn’t really matter what they’re for. Writing one from scratch is like solving a riddle.

73 – Can you program? What languages do you know?

C ++ obviously. Mathematica. A bit of self-taught Python.
