Derek has taken a position at UC Davis and been moving his webpages up there from UC Riverside.

John Baez has discussed a chunk of Derek's research in a paper he delivered at a conference a few months back. Also Derek has summarized part of it in a paper he put on arxiv last year.

Cartan geometry could turn out to play a crucial role in quantum gravity. Derek is a good clear writer so his earlier paper was a pleasure to read (the one everybody remembers as having the hamster in a ball rolling over a differentiable manifold).

Here is Derek's new UCD webpage

I've looked thru the thesis and see that one useful thing it does is gather several related lines of investigation into one organized exposition. I suspect several of us have already read large portions of Wise's thesis in other formats (I certainly have, with interest!). A good deal of the content had already been made public in papers and online slides.
