Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Categorification in Portugal

Posted by John Baez

Jeffrey Morton has gotten married!

And he’s moved to Portugal, where he’s taken a job at the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon. This is a center for work in categorification, thanks in large part to Roger Picken, who with Joao Faria Martins has recently been studying connections on 2-bundles and 3-bundles.

Check out his latest blog entry:

You’ll see pictures of Lisbon, as well as descriptions of talks from the XIXth Oporto meeting, given by Rafael Diaz, Yazuyoshi Yonezawa, Aleksandar Mikovic, Aaron Lauda, Sabin Cautis, Catharina Stroppel, Ben Webster, and Dylan Thurston.
