Site design selection
The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meMy interests are in mathematics (algebraic combinatorics, categorical logic, and a lot else) and physics (quantum theory, geometric quantization), as well as history (British, early Christian/pagan, history of science), technical works in sustainability, and a taste in fiction that I find difficult to describe. I have too many books. I have too few books.
About my libraryMany technical works. Authors whose works are represented multiply include Richard Powers (an all-time favorite), Jacques Barzun, P.G. Wodehouse, Stanislaw Lem, Tom Stoppard, and George Meredith. I would include also Thurber, O. Henry, Shakespeare, and G.B. Shaw, and several poets, but they appear in my library as collected works.
