News: I am teaching a distance course the Winter/Spring 2024 term and will divide my time between College Station, the Newton Institute in Cambridge and the Simons-Laufer Mathematics Institute in Berkeley.
Samuel Sottile, my son and a Senior mathematics major at Michigan State University, was awarded a 2023–4 Churchill Scholarship. View the press release from MSU. I was a Churchill Scholar in 1985–6; Sam is the first Second-Generation Churchill Scholar.
