[top] About Reprints, Students, INLS, and me.

I get a a steady trickle of email based on the misconception that I can accept students or influence the acceptance of postdocs at the University of California, San Diego, or possibly at the institute for nonlinear science (INLS). This is not so. I have a visiting position, and this means that I cannot influence the applications of students, accept students myself, or invite visitors. It also means that I don't have the resources to photocopy and mail reprints (not to mention the inclination). (If you have bags of money to hand out, consider this a shameless plea).

I am at INLS due to the gracious hospitality of Henry Abarbanel, the director of the institute. INLS is home to physicists, mostly, who work on spacio-temporal chaos.

To pass the time, I recently wrote a book:

Spinning the Web - A Book
