# Richard C. Swanson

## (Retired 2012) Mathematics Faculty

Professor Emeritus of Mathematics, *global analysis, dynamical systems*

## Education

- Ph.D. (1976) University of California-Santa Cruz

## Introduction

Professor Swanson is active in applied areas of global analysis involving dynamical
systems. His interests have focused on problems in hyperbolicity, entropy and dynamics
on surfaces and biological oscillators. More recently Professor Swanson has published
in symbolic dynamics. His publications have appeared in such journals as*Topology*, *Journal of Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems*, *Journal of Differential Equations*, and *Transactions of the American Mathematical Society*.
