Sunday Math

USA | Tuesday, 23 Jun 2015 | Views [228]

On Sunday, it was time to actually do math again. In the early afternoon, we met up in the lounge to look at the problem that Dr. Farley had given us over the weekend. (By which I mean 10 o'clock the night before.) It was a three part problem, though ... Read more >

Another Week Down

USA | Sunday, 21 Jun 2015 | Views [209]

Friday's class began with a definition of simplicial complexes. I knew a little bit about them from the presentation one of my classmates had given at the end of last semester. However, in his presentation, he'd jumped right into the realization instead ... Read more >

On Wednesday, we got started an hour earlier than normal with a conversation with Dr. Phillips. He asked us a number of questions about our experiences so far at SUMSRI. Some of them we were able to answer easily and helpfully, (“What would you ... Read more >

And I Wished on Every Single Day, Before I Let it Go

USA | Thursday, 18 Jun 2015 | Views [247] | Comments [1]

Tuesday began with the algebra short course. We'd pretty much finished up with groups last Thursday, so we started in on rings. So in about a week, we'd skimmed through the material covered in my Abstract 1 class and were moving on to Abstract 2. It ... Read more >

On a Monday Morning

USA | Wednesday, 17 Jun 2015 | Views [300] | Comments [1]

No one really wanted to get up for analysis on Monday morning. I woke up with my alarm at 7, decided it wasn't happeing, added half an hour to my alarm clock, and fell back asleep. For the first time all program, Dana did not wake up before her alarm ... Read more >

Fundamental Counting

USA | Thursday, 11 Jun 2015 | Views [233]

Today, the schedule was switched around a bit from what I've gotten used to. (I know, it's only been two days. I can't really pretend that I'm used to a set routine and be upset when they change it. But still...) Rather than beginning with a short course, ... Read more >

Abstract Algebra 3: the Revenge of the Groups

USA | Wednesday, 10 Jun 2015 | Views [223]

Today felt less busy than yesterday. We started later, but ended at nerly thie same time, which was part of it. However, I think the bigger difference was that today made more sense than yesterday. It was also more focused, with everything being about ... Read more >

Please Don't Tell Me to do the Math(s)

USA | Tuesday, 9 Jun 2015 | Views [287]

As I was updating my Googele Calendar with the schedule that I got from the program, my main thought was “we sure are spending a lot of time in Reserach Seminars.” This was followed by “well, duh. It is a summer research program.”... Read more >

It May Not be a Foreign Country, but it's Still a Trip

USA | Monday, 8 Jun 2015 | Views [150]

Whenever people asked me what my summer plans were, I had the choice of what to tell them. If I wanted to make it sound really interesting, I'd say I was going to Oxford to do research. If I wanted to make it sound moderately interesting I'd say I was ... Read more >
