Take a look at the side bar (on the right) on this blog. The third image down shows a crouching lion with link to the 16th US National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNCTAM) on June 27 – July 2, 2010.
Looks like pretty heavy and advanced applied mathematics to me. I won’t be going myself. It would be way over my head. I only put it there as a favor for my old time friend and one time colleague, Thomas Savarino.
Tom is a pretty brilliant mathematician in his own right and maybe he’s going to that conference. Maybe he’s even been invited!
Tom also has a wicked sense of humor which I appreciate. You can find him on facebook. We’ve kept in touch, off and on, via email for over twenty years.
Of course, it’ll be a miracle if anyone actually gets motivated by my little side-bar link to attend this conference, given the paucity of readership here.
