No lab this week.
I will be away from campus Thursday Sept 3 giving the Forman lecture at Vanderbilt University.
Davidson students will present short (15 min) talks on their summer research projects this Thursday at 4:00 in Dana 146. (Refreshments at 3:45 in the lobby.) Feel free to drop in to learn what type of research our students do during the summer.
