The Absorbing Boundary

Two hundred and fifty pages later, it's the last day of classes, and my last lecture in advanced probability is done. (I still need to tex up the one lecture I gave from hand-written notes, but there's no rush.) Looking over the tome, I didn't get to a lot of stuff I wanted to (easily enough for another semester!), it's far from self-contained, and it almost certainly contains mistakes, but I think it's not bad for a first draft. It also took an order of magnitude more of my time than was wise. I'll be teaching the class again in the spring, and hope I'll have the strength of will to leave it alone, rather than succumbing to the temptation to do something.

Posting about science and outrages against common decency will recommence shortly.
