Hamiltonian circuit

tuesday I went to Maynooth in Ireland to visit the Hamilton Institute, and then on wednesday I came back again. The institute Is a high power center of mathematicians who apply control theory and other techniques to various problems in communications (my thing) and systems biology (lots of people's thing), and very nice a place it is too

interestingly. as an evolution from the old St Patrick's College (basically a seminary for priests to study) through a national university, and now a place with specialist institutes like the Hamilton, is a very fast upwardly mobile intellectual track, which is most impressive, although if you are familiar with learning in ancient and modern Ireland, perhaps not so surprising...
