something old, something new, something borrowed ..

it's always been a goal of mine to give a new talk at each conference.
it's a sufficient measurement of research productivity:

if i have something new to say every year (or more often) then at least i am not "dead" [1] as a researcher ..
at any rate, today was the deadline for title/abstracts for the ams sectional meeting at statesboro, ga.

this time, i think i'll have to compromise. i'll talk about some old results. if i can work out this conjecture, then perhaps i'll say something new after all .. which might therefore count as a "new" talk.

here's hoping, anyway. \:

[1] oddly enough, here i mean "dead" in the erdös sense.
