My Imaginary Numbers

Frank WitteI am Frank Witte, principal teaching fellow in the Department of Economics of University College London. I work there since 2010. On this site I collect links to my teaching & research interests as well as posts I write about stuff I do, or simply opinions about current, or not so current, matters. My ORCID-record is here. You can follow me on twitter @Alarcos.

The main post-series of this blog that might interest you are:

  • Back of the Envelope: Little calculations without much complexity showing interesting things about our world you can discover on your own;
  • Opinions: Short opinions, long opinions, reasonable ones and unreasonable ones;
  • Stuff I Should Know: things that I write about that I should actually know something about;
  • Don’t Take my Word: things that I write about that probably I don’t know about … so just a warning;
  • Alternative Time Lines: About things that could have happened and what would have happened if they had;
  • Modelling & Simulation: About toying around with tools from physics mathematics and economics;
  • Mellow on Music: About music, instruments and gear;
  • Accents of Ascents: About climbing, rock, ice, routes and gear;
