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.

I’m at the KITP for the Geometry, Topology and Strings program. This week’s lecture lineup consists of Mike Hopkins and Emanuel Diaconescu. The first two talks were pretty heavy-duty. The topics are really interesting, so I’m hoping the subsequent lectures get a wee bit more accessible. Otherwise, it’ll be quite a slog.

One note I can’t resist: since my last visit, the ITP has replace its network of Sun thin clients (glorified X-terminals, IMHO) with 17" iMac’s running MacOSX in the visitor offices. Cool!
