Visting U. Maryland Physics

This week I'll be visiting Michelle Girvan, who is now on the faculty of the Physics Department at the University of Maryland - College Park. Michelle tells me that UMD Physics is one of the largest departments in the country, and, looking at their research pages (for instance, here and here), that's not hard to believe.

For those of you in the greater-DC area: in exchange for a week-long suppy of muffins and coffee, I've agreed to give a lunch talk on Thursday, April 5th. I'll post more details closer to the date.

Update, 3 April 2007: My talk will be at 12:15pm in Room 1207 Energy Research Facility (directions), The seminar series' webpage is here. My talk is entitled "Hierarchical decomposition of complex networks," and the abstract is here. End Update

I'm glad you came, although I missed the talk. Jim Yorke has been saying that we should move our seminar series because it conflicts with Applied Dynamics.

Ah, I'm sorry I missed you. I was hoping the might be a molecular biologist in the audience that I could interact with more directly about biological applications. We have a paper in the works on this stuff, but it may not be out for some time.
