Note that meetings and other faculty responsibilities may cause an occasional deviation
from this timetable. 
Meetings often occur on Tues.  & Thurs. at 12:30-1:45PM.
Use this schedule to avoid known conflicting activities (as a necessary condition).
Also, before or after a class session, genuinely-urgent issues could be addressed


Interests:

Theory of Computation
    1. computational complexity  (abstract, middle-level, and "some" low-level)
    2. models of computation 
    3. computability (0' and above)
    4. formal languages (not the applied area)
 
Artificial Intelligence
    1. syntactic pattern recognition  & higher grammars 
    2. logic programming    
    3. representation & search strategies
    4. alternate computational models (connectionist and neural net models)
    5. automated theorem proving
 
Computer Graphics
    1. generative models     
    2. L-systems, fractals, and other abstract representations    
    3. computer game design
    4. ... 

Algorithmics (Analysis (first) and Design) and Modelling

Other Interests:  Operations Research,  other areas of Computer Science,
                             Mathematics (Algebra, not Analysis), Sciences in general, Reading, ...


Ponderings and rules by which to live:

The word "should" embodies a spectrum of semantics.

Reversing time could correct the past but consider achieving the equivalent by living forward optimally.  
Each moment leads to infinitely many next states and therefore equipollent quantum realities, so choose wisely.
The triumph of foresight over regret avoids the paradoxes and saves both effort and anguish.

As the R.E. is the limit of the recursive, so in seeking virtue to the limit is perfection. 
Study without bound and be rewarded bountifully.    Do Good to all and do it well. 

When faced with the opportunity to make a false boast, instead, make that statement a reality and then nothing need be said.  

Happiness is a state of mind.  Stop trying to seek it as a causal consequence of externalities. 
Just choose to be happy.  No effort is required.   Was it so hard to just smile and avoid stress's medical  and analyst's bills. 

 In the final analysis, mind prevails over matter... unless you choose otherwise.
