Research Interests: Finance, Physics and Mathematics. In particular the application of mathematics in solving variety of problems. The "unreasonable
effectiveness of mathematics in solving physical problems" amazes me
( I am, of course stealing
Eugene wigner's quote ). My thesis research involved using the techniques of nonlinear dynamics in analyzing the Vlasov equation. My research interests include non-newotnian fluid dynamics, pattern formation thin-film dynamics and spatiotemporal chaos.
Currently, my research efforts have been directed towards financial applications; specifically the presence of non-random behavior in commodities and stock prices has really intrigued me. Does presence of non-random behavior automatically imply existence of stratergies that "beat the market"? Is there a 'chaotic' component to the price movements?
