News:
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 SecondGeneration Churchill Scholar.
Dr. Thomas Yahl just graduated with his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Texas A&M.
He is starting a van Vleck Assistant Professorship (a prestigious postdoc) at the University of Wisconsin in
Madison.

Letters of Recommendation
I am willing to write letters for deserving candidates, but please read
this before asking me for a letter.
Eschew Elsevier!
Two new(er) lows:
Elsevier
is now suing authors, and
Elsevier
sues ETH Zürich for distributing articles.
Join the Elsevier
Boycott.
Older reasons to avoid Elsevier.
Elsevier
has published fake Journals,
more,
and
others that engage in unacceptable
editorial practices.
More details.
