PICTURES TAKEN AT THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY
Graduate Students at the Patterson Office Tower 706, April 2001
From left to right: Dilek Alagoz (from Turkey), Sergio Estrada (visiting
student from Spain),
Alex Shaumyan, Matt Ragland, Leonard Hoffnung (aka Ziggy), Holly Boone.
NOTE: Ziggy wrote a haiku for The
Numerical Analysis Haiku Project, which inspired
my recent haiku International Haiku on Mediocrity that I wrote on April 18, 2001.
Here's the original haiku that Ziggy wrote:
Ah, Lanczos method
My advisor loves it so
But is it useful?
Giving an Exam in Business Calculus with Pat Quillen,
Biological Sciences Building, November 2000
NOTE: Pat Quillen--a numerical linear algebra enthusiast
and a trombone player--
also participated in The Numerical Analysis Haiku Project. Here's a haiku by Pat:
Your polynomials help
Graduate Students at Dr. Leep's Seminar on P-adic Numbers, July 2000
From left to right: Ivan S Artiouchine, Matt Menzel, Ian Winokur,
Dr. David Leep, Jack Schmidt,
Matt Ragland, Alex Shaumyan, David Zimmerman, Mark Motley, Todorka Nedeva.
NOTE: Ivan Artiouchine wrote this haiku during a tedious lecture by Dr. Russell Brown in harmonic analysis:
I could not care less
that j is compactly supported,
for the skies are gray.
At the Graduate Student Orientation, Math Sciences Inslab,
Classroom Building 313, August 1998
This is a picture of me taken during the graduate student orientation
Math Sciences Instructional Laboratory (Inslab) in the Classroom Building 313.
In the background (from left to right): Holly Boone, Matt Menzel, Kelly McKenzie.
I would like to conclude this montage with the final haiku:
On this lonely path
The wind, my sole companion--
My refuge, the sea.
October 7, 1999
