Important and timely announcements, plus a few "notes to visitors" that I wish to impart.
A brief biography, plus a few photos – to offer a little information about my education, publications, interests, awards, etc. (What is posted on Wikipedia, for instance, seems biased, unfair, and contains factual errors -- including a completely incorrect birth date for me.)
For those who perhaps are unfamiliar with my work, posted here are some highlights. My books, of course, contain more detailed discussions, and I do recommend them.

See here for various ways I can be contacted, if necessary. For professional correspondence only please! I state clearly on this page that I regrettably have no time for casual correspondence. I mean no offense; there are just simply not enough minutes in a day. So if you do write and I do not respond, please do not take it personally. This was a tough decision that had to be made. I appreciate your understanding.
