Research Interests

My work so far has been in Numerical Analysis, Non-linear PDEs, and Dynamical Systems.
A brief description of several recent projects can be found here.

What follows is an unsorted list of my other mathematical interests:

* Control Theory & Differential Games * Front Propagation Problems * Anisotropy & Homogenization * Bifurcation Theory * Dimension Reduction * Pareto & multi-modular optimization * Elimination Theory * Computability & Complexity * Approximate & Probabilistic Algorithms * Computational Geometry * Error Analysis
