Jaroslaw (Jarek) Kwapisz

Professor of Mathematics

Jarek Kwapisz



My background is in Dynamical Systems. I have worked on problems in several subject areas, including integral and differential equations, iterated maps modeling coupled non-linear oscillators, pattern formation in fourth-order Hamiltonian systems, ergodic theory and entropy in smooth and symbolic dynamics, cohomological Conley index and cocyclic subshifts, almost-periodic tiling spaces and quasi-crystals, abelian-Nielsen classes and geometry of translation surfaces, and conformal dimension of fractal sets. I am currently interested in quasi-symmetric renormalization for infinitely ramified fractals, Anosov maps on infra-nil manifolds, non-Meyer substitution Delone sets, and applications of geometry of Stokes space to multi mode fiber-optic communication.
