Greetings! I was wondering if a picture of Stephen Semmes (living legend/analysis professor at Rice University) existed anywhere on the Internet, or (long shot) if anyone has a picture of him and has heard him say "I don't mind if people with pictures of me distribute them." This is for a programming assignment for a class - I would like to make an animation about him. However, Google Image Search is turning up nothing and the Rice website doesn't seem to have a picture of him.
If you don't have a picture, or have a private picture I can't use, it would also be very very useful if you could tell me what he looks like so I can try and draw him.
I've applied to: UBC, U Alberta, U Ottawa, U Toronto, and McGill.
Any idea when they're going to reject me?
Which of the Clay Millenium Problems do you expect to be solved next?
How do you learn a new subject beyond your subfield? (Note that you can choose multiple answers)
The results of this poll are here. Thanks for participating!
I'm at a small liberal arts university studying mathematics. I'm particularly drawn to algebra. Group theory and its (co)homology seem interesting to me. The problem I'm faced with though, is that there are only two other people in my groups class, and one was the professor. The exact same thing happened in my rings class, my galois theory class was just me and the professor. I have no friends to talk to in person about anything mathematically interesting. I'm feeling like my exposure to this stuff is really limited. When I go to the undergrad math conferences I really enjoy the atmosphere and the opportunity to discuss interesting problems. I've done a little bit of graduate algebraic topology, at a summer school, which was nice - again the company of like minded individuals was very welcome. Did anyone have a similar undergrad experience? Have they since evaporated? How can I tell if I know anything about anything or where my education stands relative to other Canadian undergrad programs?
(It's a bizarre title: I'd like to see a breakfast that wasn't mathematically correct)
