Rather, it's been a big week for crystals

I mentioned some new results on crystals a short while ago; and today, there are two more. These are are of even greater interest to me, as they naturally follow my contribution to the program on perfect crystals.

The next step in M. Okado's research is to obtain an explicit description of type $D_n^{(1)}$-crystals. Since I have more experience dealing with such objects than just about anyone else, Okado-san has invited me to join him in Osaka to work on this problem. I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it, but the invitation certainly is tempting.
