The semester is rapidly winding down at MIT. Next week is the last week of classes! I am going to miss my differential equations students, but not teaching and not having classes and seminars to attend will definitely give me more time to work on my research, which will be nice. Summer in the math department is always pretty mellow. A lot of people travel for much of the summer, and even those that stay around here don't often work from the office. So the department starts to feel a little abandonned. It's very different from the academic year. I am staying around here for commencement, since a lot of my close friends are graduating. Then I am going to California, probably for a month or so, to work and see friends at Stanford. I am looking forward to it!
But it's not summer yet -- in fact, I have to teach in 10 minutes! Anyone want to come learn about matrix exponentials and solutions to systems of inhomogeneous differential equations?!?
