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 Baaaack

Sorry for the three-week hiatus; I’d decided to foreswear blogging while working on my latest paper. As a fat and lazy tenured faculty member, I can afford (and usually manage) to procrastinate about such things. But, in deference to my collaborator, a hungry postdoc without such luxuries, I decided to focus.

Well, mostly…

There were the usual distractions associated to travelling, giving talks,

Simons Workshop Lecture at the beach
Lecturing at Smithpoint Beach, Fire Island, NY

and the occasional snow-covered peak.

nestled among snow-capped peaks
Town of Banff, Alberta, from Sulphur Mountain

And I did rewrite my ecto text-filter plugins (providing itex2MML support for my favourite blogging client) for the new version (now in beta).

Your regularly-scheduled, drearily technical, programming will resume shortly.
