Math Projects

Fundamental domains for subgroups of SL2(Z) - for G0(N) and G1(N), including free generators for these groups.

Mobius transformations - definition and simple facts.

Modular quaternion groups - GAP program that finds generators and fundamental regions for the unit group in a maximal order of a Rational quaternion algebra.

Multiply transitive groups - a short tour, including a simple proof of the non-existence of sharply transitive groups of degree 4 and 5, except the symmetric, alternating and Mathieu groups.

Personal Interests

I am interested in mathematics, especially algebra and number theory (groups, fundamental domains, Hecke operators, number fields).

I enjoy singing in a choir, hiking and walking, and watching the stars when the sky is dark and clear.
