    In the Spring of 2023 I am enjoying a sabbatical semester

    In the Fall of 2004 and in the Spring of 2011 I enjoyed two sabbatical semesters and in 2017/2018 a sabbatical year.

  •                                                  Mathematical theory of scattering resonances, with Semyon Dyatlov.

    NEW! Errata

    The schedule of Bay Area Microlocal Analysis Seminar (BAMAS) can be found here.

    The schedule of The Paris/Berkeley/Bonn/Zurich Analysis Seminar can be found here.

    Information about journals with which I am affiliated can be found below.

  • NEW!   Pure and Applied Analysis
