Visitor Spring 2015: Dr. H. Praise Adeyemo of the University of Ibadan in Nigeria visited me the Winter 2015 semester as an IMU's Abel Visiting Schola. See the announcement. His area of research is the study of the cohomology of flag manifolds and algebraic groups. We have completed two research papers.
Cohomological consequences of the pattern map, 10 pages, 2014. arXiv.org/14084085. Illinois Journal of Mathematics, to appear.
Equivariant cohomology theories and the pattern map, 15 pages, 2015. arXiv.org/1506.04411.

Eschew Elsevier!   Two new(er) lows: Elsevier is now suing authors, and Elsevier sues ETH Zürich for distributing articles.
Join the Elsevier Boycott.
Older reasons to avoid Elsevier. Elsevier has published fake Journals, more, and others that engage in unacceptable editorial practices. More details.
See also Tim Gowers' blog and here is a link with more information.
I am in the middle of a four-year appointment (5/14–4/18) as a visiting adjunct professor in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo. This means that I will visit Waterloo for a week or two each of the next few years, but remain a full-time faculty member at Texas A&M. Read the announcement.
