DPVC (CV/Research) [Prev][Up][Skip][Next]

Research Interests:

Historically, mathematical research has been a paper-and-pencil affair, usually consisting of long periods of thought, in which only minor results are obtained, followed (when lucky) by short spurts of inspiration that lead to more substantial conclusions, and ultimately to publication. This is still the primary method of research in mathematics today; but the introduction of the computer has made other, more experimental, modes possible, while the growth of computer networks has opened new paths for disseminating research.

My own mathematical work falls into three main categories: first, I pursue a traditional research program in polyhedral geometry; second, I develop computer-based tools for mathematics research and education; and finally, I work on new methods to present mathematics via hypertext and the internet. All three of these areas are described more fully below. Since the latter two are somewhat non-standard, I present them with more detail than may be usual.
