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.

Amit Ramaiya graduated with Highest Honors (

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.

Lindsay Keegan's RLEssay was The Ghosts of Departed Quantities [Spring 2009].

Go Fujita earned an REU at UIUC (Univ. of Illinois), in Geometric Group Theory [summer 2004]. He is studying Civil and Coastal Engineering here at UF.

Zach Gershkoff earned a Dept. of Homeland Security summer internship and an REU in Combinatorial and Statistical Problems in Molecular Biology at Univ. of West Florida [summer 2008].

Lindsay Keegan was accepted at NC State Univ. to both its REU program

Nick James earned an REU at Hope College (in Holland, Michigan) [summer 2008]. The project involved generalizing the game

Lights Out.

This section has students who took an unusually large number of courses
with me, or who were *UnUsUaL* in some other way…

Brian Epstein took 3 of my classes. Computational Linear Algebra [MAS3114, 1998g], Adv. Calculus E&PS [MAA4102, 1999t], Intro. Number Theory [MAS4203, 2000t].

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].

Allen Boddie has taken 6 of my classes. Abstract Algebra 1, [MAS4301, Aut2005,] Intro. Number Theory [MAS4203, Spr2006,] Number theory 2 [MAT4930 Special Topics Aut2006,] Elliptic curve Cryptography [MAT4930 Aut2007,] Ergodic theory and Dynamical Systems [Two-semester grad course, MTG6401/2, 2009t&2010g]

The doctoral dissertation of Paul Zeitz (at Berkeley) was The centralizer of a rank-one flow.

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.

Nick Sharpe is currently studying Ergodic Theory with me [at the Univ. of Florida].

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*.

I was the chairman of the M.A.T. committee (Master's) of Ruth Chabot, which judged her teaching talk. [27March2007]

Ruth is now an instructor at Brevard Community College (FL).

Keith Grizzell's doctoral committee comprises Krishna Alladi, Frank Garvan, Jorg Peters (from CISE), me, and Keith's thesis advisor, Alex Berkovich. Keith is working in Number theory.

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.
