Research Stuff

I have some  papers  that you may or may not be interested in.  These (mostly) have to do with fractals and their applications in imaging.  I started out working in topology, so that explains the two papers on compactifications.  I still fiddle around with it every now and again.  I also have done some work in genetic algorithms and other types of stochastic methods for global optimization.

I have a (sorta) up to date version of my CV if you are interested.

Other Stuff

Explorations in Monte Carlo Methods is a textbook I wrote with Ron Shonkwiler and it was recently published by Springer in their Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics series.

Fractal-based methods in analysis is a research monograph that I wrote with Herb Kunze, Davide La Torre and Edward Vrscay. It was just recently released by Springer.
