How best to reach me
Geometry, particularly enumerative algebraic geometry, moduli spaces &c.
I am also interested in visualization, the history of mathematics and physics, and the interaction between mathematics and art. If you want to collaborate on something cool, send me an email. Chances are I'm interested.
My adviser is Prof. Ciocan-Fontanine.
CSE calc 4
An example of a lab notebook is here: example.
Solutions to past quizzes are here: solutions.
Rather, a picture thereof.
There is a seminar on computation in mathematics, and you should attend it. We meet Mondays 10-12 (at most) in VinH 203a.
Documents and amusements
Slides for my talk Fock's article on the SO(4) symmetry of the hydrogen atom, Mathematical Physics Seminar.
Slides for my closely related follow-up talk, Kepler: 400 years later. References to be added soonish.
More to come when I can be bothered to get my papers in order…
An applet, just to see if it works. Something more interesting might appear in the bright and shining future.
