Theory/Arithmetic Geometry Group at the University of Georgia. Do not
hesitate to contact me if you are interested in joining our group. You may
also access from here the University of Georgia Mathematics department. Joint

Trivia: Who coined the terminology Bézout domain? This
article is the earliest article (Nov 7^{th}, 1960) that I found in
the literature where the term Bézout is
used in the modern sense. Surprisingly, the terminology is only inserted in
the title, and in the text, the author defines such a ring as `anneau semiprincipal’. It makes one wonder whether
the insertion of `Bézout’ in the title
was suggested by a referee. Errata
for Lang’s book Fundamentals of Diophantine Geometry. A review of John Tate's
1966 Bourbaki Seminar article, one of
the most important articles in the field, reprinted twice already. Math
Reviews has not published a review of this article or of any of its two
reprinted versions. How should one cite the
Elements de Géométrie Algébrique (EGA)? How should one cite Crelle’s Journal? For the mathematical travelers, I have included some
notes on several departments of mathematics that I visited in Africa. People doing mathematical research at institutions
with small libraries and who have problems getting access to mathematical
articles already in print should not hesitate to use the free UGA Mathematics Library copying service. Information
for students interested in Cryptography and Computer Security. Students interested in Cryptography and Computer
security should consider taking Math 4450/6450 (Cryptography), or MATH 4400/6400 (Number
Theory) Math 4600 (Probability) CSCI 4250/6250 (Computer Security) CSCI(MATH)(PHYS) 4612/6612 (Introduction to Quantum
Computation) Please feel free to talk to me if you are interested
in these topics, or to Professors Kang Li and Rod Canfield in the Computer Science
department. Archived: Vigre seminar on algebraic graph theory. Archived: Undergraduate
and wide audience talks at UGA. In recent years, several web sites started providing
`evaluations' of professors. Unfortunately, these evaluations are anonymous,
and the evaluator is selfselected: these evaluations are usually from
students that either really liked the professor, or really disliked him/her.
In my view, undergraduate students should certainly try to find the best
available professor teaching a course, but I doubt that these web sites
provide any meaningful information in this respect. To help prospective
students in their choice of a professor, I will make public below my class
evaluations: Differential Calculus (Math 2200,
Fall 2002, data for first section) Differential Calculus (Math 2200,
Fall 2002, data for second section) More recent evaluations for Integral Calculus: Integral
Calculus (Math 2260, Fall 2010) I am not claiming that class evaluations are the
best indicator of the quality of the instructor, but at least it is certainly
a better indicator than what is found on commercial web sites. Math 2250,
