    Location: 320 Keystone Ave., Santa Cruz.
    When thinking about successful retirement, most people and the research literature focus on financial planning. Although having enough financial resources is necessary, it doesn't by itself lead to a successful retirement. Instead of emphasizing financial preparedness, this course deals with the personal and interpersonal factors in creating a successful retirement. We will:

    With all that one learns and the resources earned, one can have a successful retirement, but without reflection and planning, one's retirement can be disappointing.
    This course will involve some readings to prepare us for a thoughtful discussion so that we can learn from each other – whether we are enjoying our retirement or planning for one, we can mentor each other so that we each can have the best retirement possible.

    ...
    We will define numbers: integers, fractions, all the numbers. Of course there are infinitely many integers, fractions, numbers. Can we quantify the magnitude of these infinite sets? To answer this, we will ask: how do we define infinite? Is infinite just plain infinite, or are there infinities of different magnitudes?
    In the process of examining these concepts, we will occasionally give proofs, while being careful to not bore, and not be too formal. We will take small detours to amuse the mind. We will try to glimpse the beauty of mathematics you may have always wanted to grasp, but may have not had a chance to.
    The only prerequisite to this class is curiosity about these topics. Nothing beyond elementary school
    mathematics will be assumed

    Course Leader: I am a lapsed mathematician. I have a Master degree in mathematics from the University of Bucharest, Romania, and a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. I started a bumpy academic career as a mathematician, but swerved at some point and became a software engineer. Throughout my software engineering career, my love and awe for mathematics has never cleared from my system. Now, in retirement, I am trying to steer back to mathematics a bit, doing what is most pleasant: solving little problems, and talking about subjects in Mathematics.
