Rosemary and I are in Auckland on a seven week research visit, supported by Hood fellowships from the University.
Already I am working on several projects, on polytopes, automorphic loops, symmetric designs, optimal neighbour designs, and median graphs. I hope to make progress on at least some of these things, and will report on this (and maybe a bit on my surroundings) later.
When we arrived, Auckland was a city of rain and fog, with views of mist and mystery from our 21st floor hotel room. Only yesterday did the sun come out and was I able to take the picture at the top of this post (from the corridor opposite my office).
