July 2021: We are going to be on break for a while. Likely for the rest of the summer. With luck Tina and I will have relocated to BC by sometime in the fall and we’ll have enough bandwidth to get started again. The presentations, by both Matthew and Wayne this year, provide a wonderful resource for getting a foothold in the book (and in the “beginnings” of QFT). I can imagine that it might be worthwhile to have a few meetings at some point where anyone who’s trying to get through this material gets together and compares notes. In the meantime, if anyone has anything they want to present, just email me and I’ll get it on the calendar. -Mike
