Problem-solving, question-asking and knowledge-finding

Bruce Reznick   [email] (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Abstract: Three of the most important activities that researchers perform are listed in the title. I will talk about practical techniques for improving your skills in these areas, using specific examples of mathematics from my own work and the work of my graduate students. My intention that most members of the audience will see at least a few objects which resonate with their own mathematical interests.
