Photo in Focus

Cool! I received the February/March 2009 issue of MAA Focus. I always enjoy this issue because I get to pick out people I know from among the snapshots taken at the Joint Mathematics Meeting. Each year I know more of them. It is fun.

This year I was happy to see a photo of one of my former students who is nearing completion of his PhD and now has a tenure track job lined up at an excellent liberal arts school (I won’t embarrass him by giving his name). On the very same page is a photo of me (shamelessly promoting my book)! That was a nice surprise.
