New Math Website is Here!

As of Monday, Nov. 14th, our new website is up.  The old site will continue to exist for a time at http://oldweb.math.berkeley.edu but it will not be updated.

Members of the UC Berkeley Math Department can now log in to edit their own pages.  To set up your account, use the CalNet Login link at the upper right corner of the page.  On your first login, a message will go to the webmaster, Thomas Brown, who will then assign your account authoring rights for your profile page and the pages for any courses you are teaching.  Since lots of people will be doing this all at once, please be patient at first while Thomas catches up.

Please bear in mind that a new website is always a work in progress, and we will continue to polish things up after the switchover.  Our current to do list is below.  If you find anything else that needs fixing, please send us your comments at webmaster [at] math [dot] berkeley [dot] edu or using the email form on our Contact page
