· Primary: foundations of quantum theory
· Secondary (and mostly as related to the above): functional analysis, ordered sets and lattices, quantum information theory, quantum logic and probability theory, general topology.
I am also a fan of: category theory, measure theory, modal logic, operator algebras, and set theory. (I have offered, or can offer, reading courses in any of the above. Interested students should ask!)
Sketch: I was raised in western Massachusetts, and attended Oberlin College
(BA in mathematics, 1983) and the University of Massachusetts (Ph.D. in
mathematics, 1989). Prior to
joining the faculty at Susquehanna, I held positions at the University of New
Hampshire, the University of Pittsburgh/Johnstown, and Juniata College. My
wife, Mary Hague, formerly a professor of Government at Juniata, has more
recently been a visiting professor of environmental studies at
Math 108 – Introduction to Statistics
Math 321 – Abstract Algebra
Math 411 – Real Analysis
