I’ll be in Australia for the next month or so, giving my share of the Clay-Mahler lectures at various institutions in the country. My first lecture is next Monday at Melbourne University, entitled “Mathematical research and the internet“. This public lecture discusses how various internet technologies (such as blogging) are beginning to transform the way mathematicians do research.
In the spirit of that article, I have decided to upload an advance copy of the talk here, and would welcome any comments or feedback (I still have a little bit of time to revise the article). [NB: the PDF file is about 5MB in size; the original Powerpoint presentation was 10MB!]
[Update, Sep 4: Video of the talk and other information is available here.]
