Dave Rusin's home page
Hello, you have reached firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm not in at the moment,
but if you'll leave your name and message after the beep, I'll get
back to you as soon as I can...
I was Associate Professor of Mathematics at Northern Illinois University, but I have now moved to the University of Texas. NIU has graciously allowed me to maintain my web pages here.
For anything else try the Northern Illinois University
Mathematical Sciences Department's WWW server; it links to
other math and NIU sites.
- Research papers and preprints
(in TeX, on algebra and topology).
- Materials related to the teaching of math.
- I maintain the
which provides expository materials on mathematical subjects at the
math major/graduate student level.
- Some applications of math,
including posts and mail
on music, games, astronomy, elections, etc., from a mathematical perspective.
- Questions and solutions to recent Putnam and other mathematics competitions.
- Surely you didn't come looking for a short biography
of this illustrious person.
- Materials absolutely unrelated to what I get paid to do are
indexed on a separate non-work page,
including links to my kids and other family (and genealogy), other Rusins,
bicycling, linux, etc.
If you need to discuss mathematics but can't figure out how to
express the symbolism, perhaps you should start with the general math communication hints which
I give my students. Mail accepted in European languages (ASCII or ISO-Latin)
but please expect me to respond in English in general.
