In Preparation:

  • Adelic models of Quillen model categories (with John Greenlees).
  • Periodic points of the random period doubling substitution (with Dan Rust).
  • A handbook of model categories.

Mathematics computer applications (written in Swift):

  • Elliptic curves over finite fields - This is a small OSX application that allows you to work with elliptic curves over finite fields. The entry of the data is inuitive, however there are some "hidden" features. Clicking on a point and using the "zoom" gesture will show multiples of that point. Clicking and dragging a point to another point will add the points. While having two points added, doing the "zoom" gesture will show the lines used to calculate the addition.
