Thesis Stuff
I officially submitted my Ph.D. thesis yesterday afternoon. It is a tremendous weight off of my shoulders to have that done. I’m going to take a few days off, and then I need to get cracking on a couple of … Continue reading

Local Fractal Zeta Functions
The 2020 Joint Mathematics Meetings were held in Denver last week. While at the Joint Meetings, I had the opportunity to present some of my more recent work in the AMS Special on Fractal Geometry, Dynamical Systems, and Applications. Slides … Continue reading
Fractals 6 Slides
On Saturday, I will be presenting some of my recent work, which extends Michel Lapidus’s theory of complex dimensions in \(\mathbb{R}^n\) to a larger class of homogeneous metric measure spaces. In particular, I will be discussing the complex dimensions of … Continue reading
The Sphere is Weakly Dense in the Ball
Another qual question, this one dealing with Hilbert spaces and the weak topology: Exercise: Let \(\mathcal{H}\) be an infinite dimensional Hilbert space. Show that the unit sphere \(S := \{x\in\mathcal{H} : \x\ = 1\}\) is weakly dense in the unit … Continue reading
Nowhere Differentiable Functions
In an undergraduate analysis class, one of the first results that is generally proved after the definition of differentiability is given is the fact that differentiable functions are continuous. We can justifiably ask if the converse holds—are there examples of … Continue reading
An Elementary Duality Result
The following problem is a fairly straightforward exercise that seems to come up fairly often on qualifying exams at UCR, and I think that I finally have a nicely argued proof. I am going to put it up here mostly … Continue reading
2014 Fields Medal
The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) announced the 2014 Fields Medal awardees last night. The Fields Medal is one of (if not the) most prestigious honors in the mathematical community—it is often portrayed as the “Nobel Prize of mathematics.” Of … Continue reading
