UConn Homepage with publications, etc.

During Spring of 2023, I will be teaching:

- Part 2 of the graduate abstract algebra course, Math 5211. The course homepage is available here.
- Math for Machine Learning, Math 3094 (to be renumbered Math 3180 next year). The course homepage is available here.

- Abstract Algebra Materials for the Intro to Abstract Algebra Course at UConn. Based on Judson’s Abstract Algebra book. Videos and Notes.
- Transition to Higher Mathematics, Materials for the “Intro to Proofs” course at UConn. Follows The Book of Proof by Hammack. Videos and Notes.

- Wallpaper Groups – visualization of the 17 plane symmetry groups
- Bokeh Theme Builder – a tool to build themes for the plotting package bokeh.
- Polya’s Urn
- Disassembling a Bokeh Model – bokeh is a visualization library that I’ve gotten quite interested in. This is the output of a tool that shows the structure of a bokeh plot interactively.
- Bokeh, Bokehjs, and Observablehq
- Sequential Minimal Optimization finds the closest points in the convex hull of two linearly separable point sets. The animation at the top of this page came from this notebook.

I’m a student of clawhammer and two-finger style old-time banjo. Here is a two-finger arrangement of New Five Cent I wrote as an “assignment” by my teacher Matt Brown.

Here is the tool I wrote to help with writing this sort of tablature using lilypond.
