This pages lists some of the students (out of many hundreds) that I have had the pleasure of working with over umpteen years.
Susan Brink graduated with Honors (magna cum laude) with thesis ?? [Spring 2003], then went with the Peace Corps to Africa.
Susan earned her M.S. in Civil Engineering from the Univ. of Delaware, and is now in its Doctoral program.
Lindsay Keegan graduated with Honors (magna cum laude) with Infinitesimals: From Leibniz to Robinson [Spring 2010].
Lindsay did a second honors thesis with her advisor in the Biology dept..
As of June2010, Lindsay is a doctoral student in Biology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
James Crooks' RLEssay was Zero-knowledge proofs and Mathematical Cryptography [Spring 2009].
As of June2010, James is a doctoral student in Applied Mathematics at the Univ. of Chicago… in Chicago.
This section has students who took an unusually large number of courses with me, or who were UnUsUaL in some other way…
Daniel Franke has took 3 of my classes: Abstract Algebra 1 [MAS4301, 2005t], Intro. Number Theory [MAS4203, 2006g,], Number theory 2 [MAT4930 Special Topics 2006t].
Daniel would bring a laptop to class and wirelessly connect to my webpages in order to help me out when I had forgotten a detail (or several) from my own online notes.
Genesis Harrod took 4 of my classes: Linear Algebra [MAS4105, 2005t], Intro. Number Theory [MAS4203, 2006g,], Adv. Calculus E&PS [MAA4102, 2006t], Number theory 2 [MAT4930 Special Topics 2006t].
Paul started as my doctoral student while I was at Berkeley on an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship. The thesis project I gave him generalized to R-actions the Weak-closure theorem for Z-actions.
As my postdoc was to end before Paul finished, he transfered to being Jack Feldman's student, and finished in 1991?
Paul is now a mathematics professor at the Univ. of San Francisco.
At the moment, Nick and I are looking at, for various groups G,
constructing non-isomorphic G-actions which nonetheless
have isomorphic transformations at each
time g in G.
Ruth is now an instructor at Brevard Community College (FL).
Ali Dashti (now Dr. Dashti) was a doctoral student of Doug Cenzer, with whom I discussed various computability questions. Doug, Ali and I wrote a paper together before Ali graduated.
Dan Warren (now Dr. Warren) was a doctoral student of Miklos Bona. Dan took two Probability courses with me. We discussed combinatorial ideas, particularly Permutation avoidance problems.
