2009 Fall Learning and Research

Here, I blog about math along with my other happenings. I also keep a wishlist for things I'd like to learn about and a summary outlining things I've accomplished.

Definition: MY 2009 FALL begins on Sunday, August 23, 2009 (after I get back to Canada) and ends on Saturday, December 26, 2009 (the day when I return from my 2-week vacation).
