Welcome to my web page! My name is Jake Kettinger and I'm a first year graduate student at the math department at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. I'm interested in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Topology. Right now I'm taking Algebra (818), Topology (872), and Analysis (826). I'm also teaching Calculus II (Math 107) here at UNL. I'm still learning how to use html, so bear with me for the moment please. (but I'm getting better!)

I like hiking, board games, birds, and math (and apparently now I like making internet pages!). I also like linguistics, ecology, and paleontology but those those aren't my job. My best friends include Allison, Alyssa, Ana, Austin, Catherine, Dylan, Frank, Hayley, Jennifer, Leilani, Matt, Michael, Michelle, Nikki (photocreds), and Sally.

If you're taking Math 107 with me (or if you're in Calculus II in general), here's a nifty page of resources that may be helpful to you.

I tend to use Overleaf for LaTeX stuff, which I like so I'll slap down a link. I also like using Evan's Finite State Machine Designer for making diagrams, which Jennifer showed me how to use. Austin also likes the Ipe extensible drawing editor for making EXTREMELY professional-grade drawings and diagrams (hopefully your computer is not allergic to it like mine is!) Also here's a helpful link to the arXiv.

Here's my CV™.

Here's a list of papers I've (co)authored.

Here are some of the problems I'm working on now (feel free to collab with me!)

This is a VERY important document!

Here is a list of some of my favorite math books (with pdfs!) (Under contruction)

Here are some birds I like. (Under construction)
