30 august was the first day of classes.

i told my students that they had homework due on friday next week -- the 10 of september -- and that the list of problems was on my webpage.for the record, i have 2 x 75+ students. (evidently it's quite passé just to write down the whole list of problems, when you can simply visit the webpage again.)

today the grant writing didn't go anywhere. i was constantly rephrasing a certain part of the exposition, only to arrive at the same wording, again and again.

i was also constantly looking up articles on mathscinet, in search of references to folklore that i learned but never pinned down. in particular, there was one theorem i had in mind that i was certain someone must have proved ..

.. but i couldn't find such a paper.

who knows? maybe it's actually a new result, and it could make 1/3 of a paper. (stranger things have happened to me before.)
