Research
My research is concerned with geometry and geometric flows. This
includes
work on Ricci flow, discrete versions of the heat equation, curve
shortening flow, and discrete Riemannian manifolds. I am also
interested in
Delaunay triangulations and their generalizations.
If you are interested, I have been working on an introduction to my work
intended for the nonmathematician. It is still a work in progress and
still in its early stages. (In fact, it is really just a summary of
some
geometry right now, and possibly outdated.)
Please let me know if and when you find mistakes.
You may find links to my research papers at ArXiv
and
MathSciNet.
I run the Geometric
Evolutions
On Computational Abstract Manifolds (GEOCAM) project
During summer 2010, I ran the Arizona Summer Program,
a research program for undergraduates sponsored by UA's VIGRE grant.

Here are some notes on Kahler geometry:
Here are my notes from the physics seminar lecture on the Legendre
Transform.

Conferences
I recently organized the following conferences and special sessions:
Mathematical Preprints, Libraries, and Finding Books
Here's a copy of a paper I wrote (in LaTex) on Lyapunov Stability
of ODEs for an honors seminar at Cornell: A Brief
Overview of Lyapunov Stability for Ordinary Differential Equations.

 FreeTranslation.com
 The
best automated translator I've seen out there.
 Babelfish  another
online translator. I don't like it as much, but it is named after an
object in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so it's got
that going for it. Which is nice.
