Topic: 

“Three Things I Never Published”

Description: 

Results on a two way convection-diffusion problem; an asymptotic error analysis on a piece-wise uniform grid; and a framework for understanding quadrature errors in Finite Element Methods are presented. These results were never published, although I learned something new working on each project. I will discuss the reasons (which are of mixed quality) why I never finished these projects. The discussion will hopefully be useful to the audience as they decide which projects to see to completion and which to put on the back burner (possibly forever).
