We’re at the end of another month. So it’s a good chance to set out requests for the next several week’s worth of my mathematics A-To-Z. As I say, I’ve been doing this piecemeal so that I can keep track of requests better. I think it’s been working out, too.
If you have any mathematical topics with a name that starts N through T, let me know! I usually go by a first-come, first-serve basis for each letter. But I will vary that if I realize one of the alternatives is more suggestive of a good essay topic. And I may use a synonym or an alternate phrasing if both topics for a particular letter interest me.
Also when you do make a request, please feel free to mention your blog, Twitter feed, Mathstodon account, or any other project of yours that readers might find interesting. I’m happy to throw in a mention as I get to the word of the day.
So! I’m open for nominations. Here are the words I’ve used in past A to Z sequences. I probably don’t want to revisit them. But I will think over, if I get a request, whether I might have new opinions.

And there we go! … To avoid confusion I’ll mark off here when I have taken a letter.

All of my Fall 2018 Mathematics A-To-Z should appear at this link. And it’ll have some extra stuff like these topic-request pages and such.

A little boring, but the Quadratic Equation covers so much ground and multiple disciplines, so I’ll through that out there.
It’s a good thought, though. Thank you!
S- Stars and bars (combinatorics)
Also good nominations; thank you. I shall be considering them.

R – randomness
T – tilings
Nice topics, thank you.
Parasitic Numbers, if you haven’t covered what they are and why they occur.
I haven’t done them, no, but I’ll think about them. Thank you!
I like the topic and I’ll be considering it. Thank you.
