Master of Muppets

My thesis defence was yesterday, and I passed. I still have some corrections to make, but this means that the pressure is off and this degree is pretty much in the bag.

As per Evan's request, I will put up an online copy of my thesis when I have made these revisions.

Tonight: celebration.

spring had sprung

I have handed in the 150-page monster that is my thesis. Titled Sturm-Liouville Problems with Eigenparameter Dependent Boundary Conditions, it's easily the longest document I've ever worked on . . . fortunately, I don't need to produce too many more of these theses.

My defence is scheduled for May 29th. The five or so people on my committee can ask whatever they like . . . should be interesting.

Now that I'm coming out of my basement/office some more, I'm noticing how sunny it is. It appears that I missed most of spring, but can now enjoy summer.

Remember, the best defense is a good offense. Answer all their questions with, "If you're so smart, why don't you just re-write the paper? Huh, tough guy?"

Oh, and you should be drunk, too.
