I’ve now been writing fortnightly blog posts for the Heidelberg Laureate Forum’s Spektrum blog for over nine months. Small trumpet noises! Here’s what I’ve been writing about:

- Public Key Cryptography (29 January) in which I describe the famous work of HLF regulars Diffie and Hellman
- A puzzle ‘four’ the new year (11 January) in which I discuss number puzzles, which do and don’t involve the digits 2, 0, 1 and 9
- The Twelve Facts of Christmas: Pascal’s Triangle (20 December), a festive round-up of mathematical facts
- Right on the Money (4 December) in which I wonder if the new British £50 will have a mathematician on it
- Measuring the Change (21 November) on the forthcoming redefinition of the kilogram
- Permutations and Tribulations (13 November) on the superpermutations discovery made anonymously on the internet
- Katherine Johnson (7 September) on life of the mathematician
- Game, SET and maths (16 August) about the card game SET
- New shape discovered – right under your nose (6 August) in which I describe the newly-discovered scutoid shape, found in nose cells
- Flexagons and false advertising (27 July) in which I explain how ordinary paper can be much more impressive if you flex it, Martin Gardner-style
- Few tile attempts (5 July) in which I discuss tilings and tessellations, and then decide how to redecorate my bathroom
- Cake and Coincidence (21 June) in which a striking coincidence prompts a discussion on probability and birthdays
- The Bridges of Königsberg (29 May) discussing the famous problem in graph theory
- A truly special occasion (18 May) all about myself and my partner’s Golden (ratio) wedding anniversary
- Colouring in like a mathematician (3 May) covering the then-current Chromatic Number discovery

I’ll continue writing posts for HLF’s Spektrum blog as long as they want me to – keep checking their Twitter feed or the blog’s RSS feed to see them as they appear!
