Student Research Projects:

I have many research projects, Most are intended for 501 theses or PhD level projects.
If you are interested in doing a research project in:
Dynamical Systems, Social and Economic Networks, Coherent Motion of Flocks, Topology/Geometry,
Fractal Geometry, Discrete Mathematics, and Mathematical Physics, or others, please talk to me.
