## Teaching

This Fall, I am teaching
PIC10A.

Last year, I taught
PIC16.

Previously, I have taught
Math 115A,
Math 95,
and
Math 131A (many, many times).

I have also taught
Math 117, Math 31A, Math 31B,
and Math 32B.

You can have a laugh about what my students say about me
here and
here.

## Music, Audio, and Video

I am obsessed with music and audio. Don't talk to me about Meshuggah or Car Bomb rhythms, or DSP (digital signal processing) unless you have a couple of hours available.

### Guitar

I play metal guitar. Here's a Meshuggah cover. Here's a partial Car Bomb cover. Here's one of my own.

### Electronic music

Although I am currently more focussed on the guitar, for years, I have made electronic music. A general correlation is that the more recent the electronic music, the more math I used to make it! My "best" music can be found here.

One time, I made a track featuring Kathryn Hess. A mathematical process called convolution was used to help create this from conference talks which we gave at Union College.

### Video

My desire to create audiovisual art was the reason that I started to code. I have a webpage dedicated to this art: michael-j-andrews.com.

## Math work

### Publications

New families in the homotopy of the motivic sphere spectrum, easily accessible versionInverting the Hopf map - with Haynes Miller, easily accessible version

### My thesis

The v1-periodic part of the Adams spectral sequence at an odd primeThe draft

### Some pictures of spectral sequence E2 pages

Thank you to Yan Zhang for help with plotting the first two.E2 page for the v1 periodic sphere at 5 - you'll need to wait for it to load and zoom out a lot

E2 page for the v1 periodic sphere at 7 - you'll need to wait for it to load and zoom out a lot
