To mark the end of eleven very fruitful years in residence at the University of Waterloo, I have written a goodbye essay. The title and abstract appear below, along with a link to the full text. The essay describes my long-term research goals and presents my personal vision for the future of the areas of mathematics in which I work.
||The Geddes Series Project: A Vision for the Future of Multivariate Real, Complex, and Hypercomplex Analysis
||This essay describes my personal research vision, which has evolved and grown over the course of two decades of free inquiry in both mathematics and computing. I will begin by thanking two leading researchers who have played a vital role in nurturing that vision: Keith Geddes (Waterloo) and Bruno Buchberger (RISC-Linz). I will end by inviting researchers in pure, applied, and computational mathematics to join my closest colleagues and myself in a broad, ongoing, interdisciplinary collaboration—to embark on a new adventure of unfettered exploration, full of promise and possibilities!
