Eric Jonas once asked me on Twitter whether I was an Abelian consultant. The pun is an allusion to Abelian groups, groups in which the group operation commutes.
No, I’m not an Abelian consultant. I don’t have a regular commute. I’m more of a Lévy consultant. A Lévy distribution has heavy tails. That is, it is often near the origin, but occasionally takes very long excursions.
I vaguely remember a couple papers about the Lévy distribution, one saying that whale migration follows such a distribution, and another saying that human movements do too.
