My real name is Rod Vance. I am a multicellular organism which sometimes organises itself into doing the work of a freelance optical physicist and designer and also working on private publications in fields of physics and mathematics that interest me. I am particularly interested in geometry and Lie groups; an exposition on the latter subject is slowly being built at:

See also some other topics, particularly those directed at curious, small children (which is all of them, until society beats inquisitiveness out of our little stars) at http://www.wetsavannaanimals.net . I am not particularly active on this site any more but visit often and enjoy its discussions.

"Wet Savanna Animal" describes my evolutionary history, which animal history I share with at least some readers and which must restrict which patterns we can recognise in human mathematics as human mathematicians and physicists.
