Research

Anthony is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and works in the Applied and Computational Analysis group. He did his PhD under the supervision of Prof. A.S. Fokas. His research interests include: novel approaches  to elliptic boundary value problems, Lie groups in PDE, new approaches to rigorous problems in Linear PDE theory and certain aspects of mathematical physics.

Teaching

He is lecturing the Part III course Distribution Theory & Applications, which focuses on classical distribution theory and application to the analysis of linear PDEs.

He also lectures Part II Integrable Systems which includes topics such as: the Arnold-Liouville theorem, inverse scattering, infinite dimensional Hamiltonian systems and Lie group methods in PDE.

  1. Hand Out 1 (generating functions)
