It's Not too Esoteric for Seepy Benton

U. mathematician wins Italy’s top science award | The Salt Lake Tribune: "Christopher Hacon’s exploration of how polynomial equations help scientists describe objects in multiple dimensions may be too esoteric for most people to grasp. But it has earned the University of Utah mathematics professor numerous scholarly awards, including his promotion last year to distinguished professor."

Know just enough to understand some of the issues/problems, but that's about it. Congrats to Dr.Hacon.

I've always said that higher abstract algebra is going to make a comeback one of these days because it describes the inner structure of things.
