I'm a mathematician currently working in informatics, and at the same time a grad student researching graph theory.

comment Awfully sophisticated proof for simple facts
@MichaelBlackmon: Do you have a reference for that claim? This would give me a proof of the corollary that I'm an algebraist.

comment Demonstrating that rigour is important
I guess this was in the 20th century. These days you can check quickly with a computer that the sum of the first five million primes is already over pi.

comment Demonstrating that rigour is important
@BlueRaja: yes, but the calculator will be dead long before that point happens.

comment Computionally efficient vertex enumeration for (convex) polytopes
How is the polytope defined? Is it given as an intersection of half-planes? If so, can this problem be transformed to the dual problem of enumerating all the facets of the convex hull if the vertices are given?

comment Mathematical habits of thought and action which would be of use to non-mathematicians
So as a mathematician, I should be paid more if I get fatter? See the recent Dilbert strips: dilbert.com/series/63

comment Too old for advanced mathematics?
You may consider asking this question on Mathematics Educators SE (which is a new site that didn't exist yet when you posted this), as matheducators.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic indicates questions about learning mathematics are on-topic there.

comment Time for Langton's ant to cover a “square” torus
In the pictures showing how often the ant appears on a square, could you give a legend for what color means what frequency?

comment Correlation between two continuous-time stochastic processes
This question seems to general. Could you be more specific, like, give the particular processes you're interested in.
