My Schedule


My background is in Dynamical Systems. I have worked on problems in several subject areas, including integral and differential equations, iterated maps modeling coupled non-linear oscillators, pattern formation in fourth-order Hamiltonian systems, ergodic theory and entropy in smooth and symbolic dynamics, cohomological Conley index and cocyclic subshifts, almost-periodic tiling spaces and quasi-crystals, abelian-Nielsen classes and geometry of translation surfaces, and conformal dimension of fractal sets. My current purely mathematical interests include quasi-symmetric renormalization for infinitely ramified fractals, Anosov maps on infra-nil manifolds, non-Meyer substitution Delone sets, and multi-dimensional continued fractions. Much of my time is also spent on bringing geometrical insights into electrical engineering problems in multi mode fiber-optic communications and on poking around quantum computing and Quantum Mechanics in general.
