HOME CV TEACHING RESEARCH

MAX LIPTON

I am a fourth year PhD candidate in mathematics at Cornell University, working under Steve Strogatz. I'm interested in dynamical systems that arise from pure mathematics. Right now, I'm working on two research projects: the hyperbolic geometry of higher dimensional Kuramoto oscillators, and electrostatic knot theory.

You may reach me at ml2437@cornell.edu.

TEACHING

I am not teaching during the 2019-20 academic year. When I am teaching, course materials will be found here.

RESEARCH

My research projects are ongoing, but here are two preprints that summarize my work so far.


A lower bound on critical points of the electric potential of a knot. Submitted for publication and under review.
On higher dimensional generalized Kuramoto oscillator systems (with R. Mirollo and S. Strogatz).
