Teaching

Papers

Lecture Notes: 1. The Probabilistic Method in Combinatorics

2. Real Mathematical Analysis

These are based on lectures I gave for 2 different courses and had the students act as scribes. They still need some polishing.

Some interesting websites:

The Papers of Paul Erdős: The Renyi Institute seems to be doing a great service to all Combinatorists by having an online repository of all (well, not all!) the papers of Paul Erdős. As far as I see, the list looks pretty comprehensive till 1989.

Douglas West' Open Problem Page.

How to give a talk: I saw this link on the homepage of Paul Nevái; I have tried to find the original article but all the links I have found online seem dead or lead elsewhere. This is apparently based on a talk delivered by Gian-Carlo Rota on the occasion of the Rotafest in April, 1996.

My Favorite 5 (In alphabetical Order):

Other (Non-mathematical) Interests:

Music: I have now moved samples of my work here

My Blog: I wrote more regularly at one point of time. Some of them were just random rants/musings. But some of them were written purely for form and structure rather than content.
