Introduction

This wiki is a platform for storing references and other resources, scheduling events, making introductions and having conversations among program participants. Program participants and researchers who are following the activities remotely are encouraged to add discussion or add new pages.

Getting started

Learning to use this wiki is no harder than learning to use email. Briefly, to edit a page, simply click the Edit tab at the top of the page. To add a page, click on the New Page item at the top left. Every page has a discussion board associated with it. To peruse the comments or to add your thoughts, click the discussion tab on the top of any page. To try your hand at using this platform, you can go to the KITP practice wikispace. You will find illustrations of how to add tables, files, images, etc. You will also find a list of all previous KITP wikis from which you may get some idea how others have exploited this medium.

Attention: MAC USERS

If you use Safari, be sure you have upgraded to version 3.0+ before using the visual editor. We recommend using the FIREFOX browser instead because it is freely available for nearly all operating systems and has many features that Safari does not. It is already available on your workstation at KITP or can be downloaded from here.
