Tim Gowers comments on the disappeared mathematical model for male variability (he's not impressed). Also adds some good thoughts about the origin of the observed gender disparities in the real world
Tim Gowers, Fields medalist mathematician, examines Ted Hill's paper about the "greater male variability" hypothesis (ht )
Soo... If you are tired of hearing me rant about that article on the GMVH math paper that got shut down, you can now hear a Field's Medalist (Tim Gowers) discuss it. tag:
Anyway, here’s Gowers on the paper
I know that Tim Gowers, who's a very venerable mathematician at Cambridge thought that the math in that paper looked pretty dodgy.
Also, see this, by Tim Gowers, who's a well-known Cambridge mathematician. Gowers thought the math in that paper was pretty spotty.
