I’ll be heading to the 2010 Joint Mathematics Meeting in San Francisco next week. In case any of you are interested in meeting up, here are a few of the items on my (busy) schedule. Please introduce yourself; it would be nice to put faces with names.
- I’m giving a talk on some work with my collaborator, Jim Wiseman, entitled “Symbolic Dynamics for Nonhyperbolic Systems.” It is in the AMS special session on Dynamical Systems, Friday, January 15 at 5:15. I have no idea how I’ll be able to say anything in my 10 minute time slot, but I’ll do my best.
- I’m on the MAA Committee for Minicourses and will be monitoring two minicourses (one of the perks of being on the committee!):
- Using GeoGebra to create activities and applets for visualization and exploration, by Michael K. May
- The hitchhiker’s guide to mathematics, by Dan Kalman and Bruce F. Torrence
- I’m having a book signing for my book Euler’s Gem at the Princeton University Press booth in the exhibit hall, Friday, January 15 at 10:30. Please come by!
If you are going to JMM 2010 and are giving a talk, post it in the comments below. Also, if you’re on Twitter, the hashtag for the meeting is #jointmath. I don’t have a smart phone, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to tweet. But I’ll try to contribute some.
Speaking of Euler’s Gem,… in case you are interested…
- My book finally has a web page (http://www.eulersgem.com/). Yay!
- It has a Facebook page.
- It is on Twitter (@eulersgem).
- I’ve really enjoyed reading people’s comments on the book on Amazon.com. If you feel inspired, head over and share your thoughts!
