Holy cow!

I am totally impressed. Way to go, Anna. How's that monstrous course coming, by the way? Are you teaching it in the fall?

Spencer G said...

This one is also extremely impressed. And trust me, I don't use that adverb often.

I want to read a monster course and a course of monsters--just because of how awesome the name is. How can I get my hands on this? My only publication was about the classification of fibres in rational elliptic surfaces in a field of characteristic 3, and for some reason, nobody asked to read it . . . maybe I needed a better name.
