I'm interested in understanding the big picture in mathematics, how the various concepts unfold. I've systematized the ways of figuring things out in mathematics: Discovery in Mathematics: A System of Deep Structure.
This page shows my current interests.
I have a B.S. in Math and B.A. in Physics from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. in Math from the University of California at San Diego. My Ph.D. thesis was Symmetric Functions of the Eigenvalues of a Matrix.
