Publications.

Ian M. Musson on Mathscinet

Ian M. Musson on the UC Davis Front for the Arxiv.

Poster for a short course I gave on Lie Superalgebras at the University of Porto.

You can search my preprint
directory
if you wish.

It contains some older papers that I did not post on arXiv.

Why am putting all this LGBT stuff on my webpage? Why is it important?

I have been thinking a lot recently about the apparent lack of positive role models of LGBT people in Mathematics and Science. In particular,I am concerned that if you are a young LGBT person is interested in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

you might feel that this is something that is not for you, since you see many of your peers planning to graduate in the Arts or Humanities. Read more

If you are
interested in role models you can find some resources here Famous Gay Mathematicians
and Scientists

Below are links regarding some people
that I find especially interesting.

Lynn
Conway (born January 2, 1938) is an computer
scientist, electrical engineer and transgender activist.

Robert MacPherson (born May 25, 1944) is a prominent contemporary gay mathematician. Together with his partner Mark Goresky he invented a newway to study singular topological spaces using intersection homology.

There is a fascinating biography of him on the webpage of the Simons Foundation.

The Wikipedia article is shorter and deals mainly with his honors and acheivements.
