This project will develop knowledge and skills in several general areas of algebraic, geometric and enumerative combinatorics, including polytope theory, poset theory and symmetric function theory.

Project

Nonlinear acoustic-gravity wave theory

This project focuses on the recent finding that acoustic and gravity wave motion could exchange energy via resonant triad nonlinear interactions.
