Dear Knot at Lunch People,

We will have our next not lunch on Wednesday June 10, in my office (Bahen 6178) at 2PM.

Peter Lee will supply us with modest goodies; with goodies we will discuss a possible interruption of the Knot at Lunch meetings until the end of 2009 and maybe beyond (I expect a very busy teaching year next year). After that, the agenda is open, but possible subjects include the merits and demerits of videotaping math lectures (and how to do it properly), the most recent Alekseev-Torossian paper (arXiv:0906.0187), and more.

Further information about this Knot at Lunch meeting may be posted later at

As always, if you know anyone I should add to this mailing list or if you wish to be removed from this mailing list please let me know. To prevent junk accumulation in mailboxes, I will actively remove inactive people unless they request otherwise.



Some Content

We talked a bit about a $10 problem I offered about the Alexander polynomial (see BBS/KAL-090610-144148.jpg and Pensieve/WKO the "wA" mathematica notebook). We then talked about Peter Lee's new PBW basis for (see BBS/LeeP-090610-150110.jpg). Finally we talked about my dreams of efficiently and correctly videotaping classes.
