Karen Uhlenbeck - The first woman to win Abel Prize (2019)



. . . . . .Most of all, she loved reading, shutting herself away whenever she could to devour advanced science books, staying up late at night and even reading secretly in class. She dreamed of becoming a research scientist, particularly if it meant avoiding too much interaction with other people; not that she was a shy child, but rather because she enjoyed the peace and solitude of her own company. The last thing she wanted to do was to follow in her mother’s footsteps and end up teaching – an attitude that would change dramatically later in life.
Uhlenbeck’s love affair with mathematics developed only after she had started at university. . . . . . .

There is a difference

Is not getting rid of laziness and up and working the same ?
No they are not the same.
Up and working is about inspiration. About springing into action. About spontaneity. It is based on two difficult to quantify terms like conscience and quality.
Getting rid of laziness is about methods. It is about motivation. It is about duty, perhaps. It is based on a difficult to quantify term like will power.
Up and working is like working in an MNC.
Getting rid of laziness is like pulling a rickshaw.
Up and working may be equated to static friction. So to say.
Getting rid of laziness is about dynamic friction.

Coach Expected (Not guru)

C S Seshadri FRS is an eminent Indian mathematician. He is the founder and director - emeritus of the Chennai Mathematical Institute and is known for his work in algebraic geometry. He is known for Seshadri constant, Narasimhan Seshadri theorem and more.
C S Seshadri is likely to be a great coach (not guru) for mathematical endeavours.
If I get a chance to work in computer mathematics software group at Chennai Mathematical Institute, I can then concentrate on mathematics. I shall then join art classes too in Chennai and improve skills in art.
Presently, I have desire to learn violin. Carnatic music. The desire arose because I realised my left hand is strong because it is my masturbating hand. Since left hand is strong, I thought why not utilise it for learning violin.
Then, if these do not satiate my desires, I can always join a chess club in Chennai.

Chess as I play

With this sort of starting I usually beat AI Factory's Chess Free app at Level 5.
With this sort of opening I usually extend Level 5 of above a lot. But finally get defeated.
1. Bishop visualisation is very poor.
2. Pawn visualisation is very poor.

MMM - Maximum Mathematics Materials

The following are the mathematical materials that I have desire to master.




About Steel Industry in India

Tata Steel is number one.
Jindal Steel is number two.
SAIL is number three.
The key objective of a state CM like Mr. Naveen Patnaik would be to groom the SAIL unit RSP to satisfy state priorities like employment, lifestyle, know-how or skills of Oriyas. Similarly such is the wish of Tamil Nadu CM Mr. Palanisamy for Salem Steel Plant.
SAIL board must be a big irritant to these big guys as possibly SAIL board cannot satisfy all the needs of individual CMs.
Now coal, minerals etc. are best imported collectively by SAIL, Jindal and Tata.
It is best that individual CMs communicate with Tata and Jindals for their state steel plants for crucial resources.
SAIL board is responsible for keeping cordiality with these CMs and also liasoning with Steel ministry. The SAIL board is expected to arrange finances for running cost. Capital cost is likely to be influenced more by individual state governments.
On a personal front I feel I have Level 5 leadership qualities and want a streamlined organisation.
I used to read Economic Times regularly.
I used to blog on global steel scene.
I am interested in mathematical constants.

Books downloaded from internet

I have bought books for kindle reader. These I had already posted in my blogs. If you have missed them: here is the link http://kirtivasan-powerofyourcompany.blogspot.com/2017/10/communist-america.html?m=1.
Then I have painstakingly downloaded books which were free from internet into my mobile. Here are the snapshots.
