I'm thinking of writing to Greg Sorkin, who graduated from Stuy the same year I did, and was in some of my math classes. (nsingman, you may remember him.) He has done a lot of research in CS theory. I would like to know his views on learning abstract math, problem solving, etc. Since he learned from some of the same HS teachers I learned from, I wonder how he feels they influenced him. I also wonder if he had any additional influences (particularly ones I didn't).

FYI, here's some thoughts about problem solving from another Stuy graduate who was also a grad student at UCLA while I was there. We were both in cs281a, the computability and complexity theory class taught by Sheila Greibach (of Greibach normal form).
