In December 2010, I shared a brilliant mathematics series written by Steven Strogatz at the Opinionator blog of New York Times. Last Monday, Steven has started another series with Singular Sensations. This is the first of the six articles of the new series which he titled Me, MySelf, and Math. According to Steven, the series will focus on how “the subject he loves (mathematics) relate to the subject we all love (ourselves).”

Steven Strogatz is an American mathematician and the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics at Cornell University. He is known for his contributions in mathematical biology and complex network theory.
