Area of Interest
Shock waves, general relativity, applied analysis.
Courses Related to Research Interests
Background in PDE's, such as MAT 118, 218 sequence, and a 280 in Shock Wave theory like my 280 on shock waves.
A course in differential geometry MAT 116 and the theory of tensors and curvature (The part of our grad Diff Geom sequence on the Riemann curvature tensor).
A course in general relativity (in physics, or my 280 on GR).
Students with a mature understanding of math and physics can learn material by independent study.
