Relatively Prime season 2

Samuel Hansen, the force behind Strongly Connected Components and other excellent mathematical podcasts, is releasing the second season of his longform series Relatively r Prime.  The first episode, “The Lexicon”, focuses on the language (both words and symbolic) used in mathematics.

In this episode, Samuel revisits his old feud with Peter Rowlett on whether it’s “math” or “maths”.  It turns out that, according to Google’s word2vec model (which RaRe technologies has a web tool for), math is to maths as sports is to sport.
