Submitting to the Archive

As this is the only public repository of sarong-wearing mathematics images, contributions are strongly encouraged. The process for submitting an image to the archive is quite simple:

  1. Put on a sarong.
  2. Prove a theorem.
  3. Take pictures.
  4. E-mail them to roed dot math at gmail dot com.
Images should be in jpeg format. Please include the name of the theorem, the name of the person proving it, the date of the proof, and the location at which it was proved.
