**Sage-Dynamics: Software for computation and
experimentation in dynamical systems for Sage**

This project is partially supported by NSF grant DMS-1415294.

Sage-dynamics - main page for status and information on the project

**Some
examples using the functionality:**

ICERM Workshop 2: slides ; Sage examples

ICERM Beginning of semester problems: Sage worksheet

Computational Records in Algebraic Dynamics

**Research Interests**

Arithmetic dynamics,number theory, and associated computational problems - research statement.

**Student Research**

If you are interested in problems in the area of iterated functions (dynamical systems) and developping software in Sage to work with these problems, then stop by my office.

I have projects ranging from theoretical problems to computational experimentation to implementation of algorithms. Problems are appropriate for students with mathematical and/or programming (python or C) backgrounds of all levels.
