French-Isreali Meeting and Günterfest
More updates: If you are in Paris On Wednesday and Thursday this week there will be a lovely French-Isreali interacademic meeting on mathematics. The problem is very interesting, and I will give a talk quite similar to my recent MIT talk on quantum computers.

Happy birthday, Gunter
