Here are a couple of documents that didn't fit elsewhere and links to some less common mathematical sites.

Lecture notes on basic complex analysis

At Columbia, it is/was customary to finish the fourth
semester of calculus with
a brief introduction to complex analysis. These are notes I typed up for this
purpose; they give an introduction to complex differentiation and integration
using the real theory as a starting place and point of comparison. There are
occasional references to the book (James Stewart's Calculus:
Early Transcendentals, 6th edition) and previous lectures, but these are
generally peripheral.

Abstract of talk from Oberwolfach

I gave a talk titled "Universal superharmonic functions and
their application to the conformal type of proper minimal surfaces in R^3" at
the Oberwolfach Arbeitsgemeinschaft on minimal surfaces, held October 5-9, 2009.
This is an extended (2.5 pages) abstract of the talk, which
appeared in the Oberwolfach
Reports 6 (2009), no. 4, 2553-2556.

Bloomington's virtual minimal surface museum

This is a link to the University of Indiana at Bloomington's
virtual minimal surface museum, curated by
Matthias Weber. Of particular interest, in my opinion, is the
minimal surface
archive, which contains around "150 minimal surfaces with brief descriptions
and high quality images."
