Sabbaticals and Leaves

Three faculty members are on sabbatical for all or part of the 2000-01 academic year.

Sigurd Angenent
is on sabbatical all year at the University of Leiden (The Netherlands). There he is collaborating with R.C.A.M. van der Vorst on problems in classical mechanics, and with J. Hulshof on asymptotics of singular solutions in nonlinear hear equations. In addition, he is connecting with working groups on medical imaging and computer vision in Utrecht.

Steve Bauman
is also on sabbatical all year, spending most of his time in Madison. A graduate seminar in the teaching of mathematics at the university level has been meeting these last couple of years, and Steve is trying to develop a course on this topic. Thus Steve is joining with other efforts on campus in the scholarship of teaching science, engineering, and mathematics. Steve is also thinking about issues connected with the topic of quantitative literacy.

Richard Brualdi
has completed his Fall, 2000-01 sabbatical, having spent most of his time in a basement study in central Vermont. His primary project, which continues, was the writing of a research monograph ``Combinatorial Matrix Classes,'' a sequel to his book ``Combinatorial Matrix Theory'' with H. J. Ryser.

In addition to these sabbatical leaves, there are quite a few other people on leave for the entire academic year: Franc Forstneric (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia), Alexandru Ionescu (MIT), Gloria Mari-Beffa (University of Leiden, the Netherlands), Robin Pemantle (Stanford University), Panagiotis Souganidis (University of Texas at Austin), and Thaleia Zariphopoulou (University of Texas at Austin). On leave in the spring semester are Anatole Beck (London School of Economics, England) and Arun Ram (Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, England)
