The Internet map

The Internet map The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other.

Le mea culpa des maths à la finance ? Pas encore | ParisTechRevi Le mea culpa des maths à la finance ? Pas encore | ParisTechRevi Corollaire : les grands pays mathématiciens, la France au premier rang d’entre eux, font partie des coupables car ils ont offert une caution scientifique à des règles du jeu pathogènes. La finance a besoin de matheux de haut vol et elle vient les chercher là où ils sont, en France, un pays marqué en outre par une forte culture bancaire et financière. La presse du monde entier s’est déchaînée sur les matheux, du Wall Street Journal au Monde en passant par le magazine en ligne Wired. Pour l’accusation, les ingénieurs financiers formés à la française ont contribué à pousser vers l’abîme la finance américaine puis, par contagion, la finance mondiale.

The Perils of Studying Economics The Perils of Studying Economics By James Kwak Patrick McGeehan at the New York Times recently wrote about a New York Fed study finding that studying economics makes you a Republican. The headline conclusion is that the more economics classes you take, the more likely you are to be a Republican. Majoring in economics or business is also more likely to make you a Republican.
