Northeastern Computer Science is receiving a $50M gift. If you are looking for a faculty position, check out our many openings, including the joint math-cs position. Also if you are applying for a PhD take a look at our college. In particular as I mentioned already I am looking for students.
Yesterday at the Simon institute there was a fun talk about The edge of physics by its author, Anil Ananthaswamy. To divulgate the theory of computation isn’t as easy, since you can’t talk about mega experiments done at the South Pole or massive telescopes built on top of mountains. (It would also be a lot easier if we could resolve P vs. NP.) For some inspiration we can look at books related to mathematics. Here I would like to recommend Symmetry, by
If you are applying for a PhD in theoretical computer science, you may want to check out my homepage, to see what my team and I are up to, the theory group at Northeastern University, and where we stand in the rankings. (For a discussion of csrankings see this previous post.) If you think there is a match write my name on the application.
