I'm a Professor at UC Irvine, but spent most of my career at Brandeis. My research areas: Differential Topology, Transformation Groups, and Global Analysis. Recently I developed a math visualization program, 3D-XplorMath, freely available at http://3D-XplorMath.org) and a companion website, the Virtual Math Museum at http://VirtualMathMuseum.org. Last year I co-authored a differential equations text with my son Bob, most of which is downloadable from http://ode-math.com .

What is a good method to find random points on the n-sphere when n is large?
@Mark Meckes Many thanks, Mark. In retrospect, if I had been more adept with my Googling I might have discovered that the Gaussian RV approach was a "well-known" answer to my question, and would not have needed to ask it on MO. But as usual, I have come away very impressed with the utility of this great website and learned a lot from the answers I received. |

A Canonical Form Theorem for $n$-forms?
@Francesco YES ! I don't think you are missing anything---that is essentially the same proof as mine. I'll have to get Kobayashi's book from the library and have a look. Many thanks for this clue. |

A Canonical Form Theorem for $n$-forms?
@Mariano. Right, that is the way I think of it, and it was Darboux Theorem that made me think it might be true. |

Why don't more mathematicians improve Wikipedia articles?
@Mark M YES! That is a very good approximation of what I was asking for. Thanks for telling me about it. It is now one of my "pinned" tabs and I will try to help with the project. |
