Dear Colleagues,


As I am going to attend the AAG meeting in Denver from April 5-9
(www.aag.org), I am planning to stay 15 days out of my basis here in Porto
Alegre-RS, Brazil. I will be glad to deliver lectures in universities in the
US or Canada during the period after the AAG meeting. This is to say that I
will accept invitations to lecture from April 10 to April 20. If you are
interested in this offer, please email me in the address below so that we
make arrangements. You will find topics in which I can lecture below as
well. Please feel free to forward this message to any interested parts.


Thank you in advance for any invitation.
