  Jonathan Lubin

I’ve been retired* from Brown for sixteen years now, or emeritus if you like Latin. Left Providence somewhat dubiously in 1998, and then discovered that Pasadena had certain charms of its own. Now (as of May 2016), we seem to be well settled in Saint Paul, no longer feeling our way around, since we’ve been here three and a half years.

* Not retiring enough, according to some.

† It really means “depleted of merit”.

Phone number at Brown: 401-863-2708, which is the main departmental office. And that’s also the number to call if you want my home address or number. The mailing address at Brown is:

At any rate, in this site you’ll find everything about my professional life: here, you can get my Curriculum Vitæ in .pdf format, as well as a list of my publications. And you see my contact information to the left. For all other (nonmathematical) information about me, you should look in on my other page.

Formally, I’m still a member of the Number Theory Group at Brown, but since I’m there so little, my mathematical contacts before the move to Minnesota were at Caltech, USC, and even UCLA. Here in Saint Paul, I’m feeling bad at not having stopped in more at UM, a couple of miles from here, but I’ve been rather busy with domesticities.

As for research, I actually am continuing to get a little done. That means Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory broadly; narrowly, it means p-adic analysis, nonarchimedean dynamical systems, and formal groups. Just recently the Number Theory Journal of the University of Bordeaux published a paper on which I gave a hand to Bryden Cais of Arizona and Chris Davis of UC Irvine. It’s almost entirely their work, but I like to think that I helped out with some ideas that improved the presentation. Meanwhile, I have been working on something giving new maps of the so-called Nottingham group into itself, which incidentally help describe the normalizer of any finite subgroup of Nottingham. The fact remains that when it comes to research, I have to be considered a mathematical dilettante.
