"Mathematics is a piece of cake: if you like it, you will get it."
"My theory is that no matter how hard people try to describe the real world, any theory would give only a rough approximation to the reality. Except for my theory."
"...a point has the non-zero zero homology and the zero non-zero homology..."
--I.V.Mineyev, hope-not-yet-complete works.
I am a Professor at UIUC Math Dept.
My mathematical interests include subjects related to
geometric group theory, in particular,
Teaching Math 595 FAO now.
|I am an organizer of the annual G3 conference ("gee cube").
As y'all know, G3 stands for
Geometric Group Theory on the Gulf Coast Conference, commonly
abbreviated in various ways, for example,
Geometric Groups on the Gulf.|
The next G3 will take place in Pensacola, Florida, on May 27-30, 2014.

A quote from teaching evaluations:
Instructor's weakness: high expectations.
|A very important statement.|
| Another quote from teaching evaluations:
Do not teach proofs. They are useless. Teach what needs to be done on the homework and tests.

*If you feel you are sending me something important by email, please do so! But please don't get discoraged if I don't reply. I have an acute form of email anxiety. And a mild form of keabord incompatibility. This is not to say that I do not read email. I do, but it takes some time. I care very much to give a thorough reply to your email, this is why it takes longer than usual to make it. Sometimes it gets postponed to infinity. I do things well, this takes time. Sometimes infinite time. Email also tends to distract me from deep thinking. I'm working on my email skills, with variable success. It's a process.
Meet me in person, I'm much nicer that way. :)
