Duncan Brown is the program wikimaster. If you have suggestions for organization of the wiki, please contact him by phone at extension #6388, or in person in office #2311.

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.

  • There is practice wikispace where you can try your hand at using the editor without fear of destroying previous handiwork. Here, you will find pages illustrating how to add tables, files, images, mathematical expressions, etc. You will also find a list of all previous KITP wikis from which you may get some idea how others have exploited this platform.

Attention: MAC USERS

  • We recommend using the FIREFOX browser 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.
