Hi. I'm a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at San José State University. Welcome to my new homepage at www.timhsu.net!
This semester (Spring 2019), I'm teaching:
You may have also come here looking for:If you found this page while looking for something along the lines of:
http://www.math.sjsu.edu/~hsu/FOOThen try the following URL:
http://www.timhsu.net/FOOIf I have everything set up correctly, that page should have exactly the same content as what you were looking for. If not, try varying upper and lower case in FOO; my new system here is case-sensitive, whereas the old one wasn't. If that doesn't work, please let me know what you were looking for by e-mail at tim.hsu@sjsu.edu, and I'll see what I can do to fix the problem.
Office: MacQuarrie Hall 419.
Phone: (408)924-5071, fax (408)924-5080.
E-mail: tim.hsu@sjsu.edu. (Note that I no longer use my old email address hsu@math.sjsu.edu. However, I'll probably leave these two sentences on this page in the hope of attracting the attention of future Google searches for hsu@math.sjsu.edu.)
Office hours: MW 9:00-10:30; M 2:00-3:00; W 1:30-2:30. Click here for full Spring 2019 schedule.

I'm the advisor of many of our students getting BA's in Math (the pure option), so if you need advice on your undergraduate degree, please contact me, and I can at least put you in touch with someone who can help.

Other teaching things:
I'm also the SJSU Math Colloquium chair. Click here for current colloquium info.
If you're looking for information about the Center for Applied Mathematics, Computation, and Statistics (CAMCOS), I have completed my term as the Director of CAMCOS. Please contact the current director, Slobodan Simic, for more about CAMCOS.
My research interests are in various areas of discrete mathematics, especially group theory, which is the mathematical study of symmetry through abstract algebra. I am also interested in other topics in algebra and combinatorics. More specifically, my interests include:
In the past, I've also been interested in lattices, knots, discrete subgroups of Lie groups, automorphic forms and functions, ideas related to the inverse Galois problem (e.g., dessins d'enfants) and quantum computation.
If you want more details, here are my academic vitals.
A very old but still shameless self-promotion! My research monograph, Quilts: Central extensions, braid actions, and finite groups, is available as Springer Lecture Notes in Mathematics vol. 1731 (listing on amazon.com, though now out of print).
