Thesis submitted

Filed under: Math — cfranc @ 10:29 am

I’ve just returned from handing in my thesis. It took about a week to gather all the “necessary” signatures, and then five minutes to turn the damn thing in. Thankfully it’s finished!

I also finish grading exams this morning. Now all I need to do is perform my duties as “exam viewer” once the grading is finished, defend my thesis, and then I’m a free man! Well, at least until I start my new job as Postdoc at UC, Santa Cruz. We’re still at negative degrees here in Montreal, so I’m looking forward to the warmer climate.

Tomorrow I head to Ithaca to see Jenna for the first time in around two months. I’ll be travelling quite a bit in the next while (between New York, Ithaca, Montreal, Toronto and also a week-long jaunt to Ann Arbor for the Workshop on L-functions, Galois Representations and Iwasawa theory), but life should calm down a bit now that the thesis demon is no longer lurking over my shoulder. Hopefully I’ll find time to blog a bit more than has recently been typical.



  1. The title alone gets this post 5 stars. šŸ™‚

  2. Hello, what is the theme of your thesis? Can one read it somewhere?

    • It’s in number theory. Once I defend it I’ll put a copy on my webpage.

      • I found your blog by looking for a copy of Katz’s great article (a big “Thanks!” for that!) and don’t have the link to your website.
