I hope the New Year is better than we deserve.
I will be spending most of the first six months in Cambridge, at a group theory programme at the Isaac Newton Institute. So hopefully I will have some time for catching up and tidying up; things have got in rather a mess, and it has been a couple of years since I had a holiday.
This also means that there might be a higher proportion of group theory in what I have to say.
Happy New Years! We will miss you deeply in St Andrews. You deserve more of a say in everything, not just group theory.
Yes, that is very true! If you forgive the acidic remark thrown in your face like this, the battery of St Andrews isn’t exactly its fully charged.
Happy New Year! Have a lovely time in Cambridge! We will miss you in St A!
You will see me in St Andrews from time to time, trains permitting…
Thank you, Sir. Same to you and yours!
