Informal Writings and Lecture Notes:
Here I put some informal rambling mathematical essays I've written (mainly
Fill in major disclaimer of responsibility..
The very widely distributed email I sent
out about Taubes' talk "Witten's Magical Equation", announcing the birth
of Seiberg-Witten theory. (It found its way to John Baez's
This Week's Finds,
Another widespread email I wrote,
this one summarizing Kontsevich's talk "Motivic Galois Groups and
Deformation Quantization" at the 1998 ICM (TeXed up by
The Frobenius Page, an outdated

A series of VERY INFORMAL
surveys aimed at introducing the geometric Langlands
program, written long long ago (circa '95) and full of embarassing mistakes
- not to be taken seriously! (yeah I should take them down, but I figure they
shouldn't do THAT much damage right?)
- articles.bib, a list of references
in algebraic geometry, conformal field theory and representation theory
(mainly articles I have copies of) (as of 1997)
- lectures.txt, a list of seminars I
have notes for (copies of notes available on request) (updated 1996).
- mybooks.bib, my math books (updated 1996).
Here are some math links I find interesting or useful:
- The Los Alamos E-print Archive,
the universal source for math and physcs preprints. Also check out
Davis Front End for the
- Penn State's
List of Mathematics Information Servers
- John Baez' This Week's
Finds in Mathematical Physics, a wonderful collection of postings
about everything relating to the exciting world of math-physics,
written by a fellow 2D
- Yahoo's Superstring Theory page.
- Euclid, the server
of AGE and Europroj, the European networks of Algebraic Geometers.
Includes a useful list of links to algebraic geometers.
- Number Theory
Web, a list of number theorists on the web, with links to
papers and surveys.
- e.g., check out Paul Garrett,
who has various surveys about automorphic forms, L-functions and
representations (Langlands stuff) as well as an immense bibliography.
Dan Abramovic has (among other things) a

Robert Langlands' works, collected in anticipation of publication of his

a collection of articles, surveys and references relating to the
geometric (in particular, localization) approach to representation theory;

review and survey papers in physics..also accessible through
