Research Areas

                    My research is focused in two areas. The chronologically older of the two is
                    chaos theory. Here I am currently interested in understanding the degree of
                    generality of statistical robustness for chaotic systems. The other area is the
                    computational complexity of real number algorithms. Here with co-workers I
                    am trying to build the foundations of a complexity theory appropriate to
                    problems of science and engineering. Particular interests are the P versus NP
                    problem of theoretical computer science in this new context and Newton type
                    methods for solving systems of equations.
                    My wife, Beate Echols and I collect art from around the world. You can see our collection
                    at Beate's web site and Our Cuban art web site.
