Abstract Confusions

Complexity is not a cause of confusion. It is a result of it.

Math comic sites

There are some important, good, hilarious math sites you need to follow.  Few of them are listed below.


xkcd is one the best comic strip site based on math and drawn Randall Munroe. Randall, graduated as a physics student, writes most of the time about mathematics, romance, sarcasm and language.

He draws panel comics. And the figures in stick forms. Most of the strips have comments in the mouse over tool tips. There are some wonderful comic strips in his site. Few strips from there.

PhD Comics is the next best comic on math. This I think will be the most famous and favourite for many. Ph D is explained as piled higher and deeper. Unlike xkcd, phd comics is continous and bit lengthy form. Most of the stories are based on happenings of student who is supposed to be submiting his desertation for degree. Few of the best strips below.

My favourite one.
