Oops, good point! I posted it to YouTube so I could link to it from my talks webpage, but for those noticing it on google+, it's a description of an algorithm Terry Gannon and I developed to compute the modular data for the Drinfeld centre of a fusion category. It was a fun talk (at least to give) --- I demonstrated running the algorithm as part of the talk.

Please answer this anonymous survey if you have been involved with a mathematical journal as editor, reviewer/referee, author or reader in the last 3 years. By "mathematical" we also mean to include theoretical computer science and operations research journals, and disciplinary journals used by applied mathematicians. Essentially, any journal covered by Mathematical Reviews qualifies.

This survey is run by Mark Wilson (mcw@cs.auckland.ac.nz) on behalf of an international group of researchers and librarians interested in improving overall performance of the publication system in mathematics and other subjects. Its results will be made public later this year. Our estimate for completion time is 15 minutes. Currently a Google login is required in order to enforce a single submission per person, to safeguard integrity of results. However no personal information about respondents will be used and the data will be destroyed soon after the results are made public.

I've invited you to fill out the form Survey of mathematical publishing priorities. To fill it out, visit:

there is a knot problem in norcal I can send you a pic sometime. I think it's for kids, those like stupid games where the little blocs are threaded by the snaking wire, like in a doctors office with really really slow appts.

Bravo! I wondered if the 'Scott' that Alan Carey mentioned in his talk was you.

I'll explain the connection between quantum computation and topology, by analysing the computational complexity of the Jones polynomial. Recent discoveries in condensed matter physics potentially give us the tools to build quantum computers based on topological field theories. My research on topological field theories and the algebraic structures underlying them, particularly tensor categories and fusion categories, helps us understand which topological field theories may be accessible to experiment and engineering, and which can support quantum computation.
