## Getting Mathjax to Work With Hugo

Getting Hugo to work with Mathjax (or vice versa) to create these pages took a little bit of fiddling and some trial-and-error.

Everyone knows Euler’s famous identity, linking the imaginary unit to trigonometric functions:

$$ \mathrm{e}^{\mathrm{i} \pi} = -1 $$

But another remarkable identity is also due to Euler, this one linking the set of prime numbers to an analytical function:

Having managed to produce this site using the Hugo static site generator, it’s time to reflect and collect my impressions.

A survey published by O’Reilly regarding the state of the tech industry made me reflect how the field has changed since the dot-com boom (and bust) — that is, in the last 20 years, which really constitute the Internet Age and the Modern Software Era so far.

The Hugo static site generator takes some plain-text content,
marries it to a bunch of HTML templates, and produces a set of complete,
*static* HTML pages that can be served by any generic, stand-alone
web server.
It selects templates based on the type of the content, and its position
in the filesystem.

Because the site generated by Hugo is entirely static, all URLs in the
public site must correspond directly to objects in the filesystem.

Disclaimer: I use Emacs, but I am not deeply into various emacs cultish uses. I just write books and about everything else in it. (Except mail.)

That being said, I am currently dealing with Markdown and friends, and so I came across Org Mode.

It allows for a variety of input formats, and expects a particular
layout of its workspace.

Linear Algebra is one of the foundational topics for all applied mathematics. But compared to Analysis, it initially often feels stranger and less familiar. Although technically not hard, the level of abstraction is higher, making it hard to see what all the formalism is supposed to achieve.
