Clawpack Lightning Talk Introduction

Jul 22, 2013

I'm a student in the Applied Mathematics depatment at the University of Washington. My research is in "computational complex algebraic geometry". I do a mixture of symbolic and numerical computation.

f(x,y)=y3+2x3yx7f(x,y) = y^3 + 2x^3y - x^7

f(x,y)=0f(x,y) = 0 plotted in the real plane.

Cartoon of complex topology of f(x,y)=0f(x,y) = 0. (You need 4-dimensional eyes to actually visualize it.)

Abelian functions: higher dimensional versions of complex periodic functions.

I have some background in high performance computing.

I'm working on a project with Daniel Shapero on a FORTRAN-to-C wrapper called f2c. (Similar idea to Cython for C-to-Python.) However, I'm happy to help with anything!
