Buffon’s needles and other creatures

It took several false starts, complete changes of direction and various other mishaps, but “Buffon’s needle estimates for rational product Cantor sets” (aka Project Lamprey), joint with Matthew Bond and Alexander Volberg, has been completed and posted on the arXiv. I will add the link as soon as it goes live; in the meantime, you can also download the paper from my web page.

(Updated: the arXiv link is here, and here is the revised version with minor corrections and clarifications.)

    You can’t tame a lamprey, but if you’re paying attention, you can sidestep it.
