1.  Because UCSD is completely closed on Monday, Nov. 12, in honor of Vetereans Day, I WILL NOT BE HOLDING OR TAPING A CLASS SESSION.  (In fact, I will not be holding a makeup at any time, due to UCSD regs. making it an untenable idea.  I will have to tweak the class syllabus to allow for one fewer class.  Stay tuned for more details.


2.  I will hold office hours BY PRIOR APPOINTMENT only on Monday, Nov. 12th.  If you wish to see me sometime during 2 PM and 4:30 PM, please email me at


3.  I have finally completed the instructions for the Short Paper.  (They are posted on this website as a separate file)


Have a good holiday and see you on Monday, Nov. 19th.
