Thanks to anonymous for providing the link from my previous LOTR Math entry.

It was drawn by Matt ‘Shaggy’ Bounds and he redrew it so it looks better (as seen above). It’s also on t-shirts.

## Mathematicians offer elegant solution to evolutionary conundrum

From the ScienceDaily:

“UBC researchers have proffered a new mathematical model that seeks to unravel a key evolutionary riddle–namely what factors underlie the generation of biological diversity both within and between species.”

Their research can be found in *Science*:

Michael Doebeli, Iaroslav Ispolatov. **Complexity and Diversity**. *Science*, 2010: 328 (5977): 494-497 DOI: 10.1126/science.1187468

Keep up the good work mathematicians!

## Math teacher gets creative for April fools & Halloween

He also has a halloween video from last year which is rather entertaining:
