My research is somewhere in the region of Algebra, Computer
Science, Geometry and Theoretical Physics. One connecting interest
is mathematical physics, but my approach to the subject is more
related to pure mathematics. I am a generalist rather than a
specialist, and frequently end up learning things as I go along.
Here are some of my current interests:
Research interests - noncommutative
Research interests - geometry and
Research interests - computer science

The tragic story of Avery, the
West Point cat.
Their buttons had all been polished
and their uniforms had been freshly pressed,
Avery's team could out-mouse the navy anytime.
Such a cat unflappable had never been seen
since Min the Mog played opposite James Dean.
Cadet Avery, the West Point cat.
One night by the Hudson the alarm went out,
there's vermin in the commander's house!
Avery mobilized his platoon without delay.
They routed the rats and massacred the mice
and victory complete was wrought in a trice.
Lieutenant Avery, the West Point cat.
The flags flew and the bugles bugled
when the president came to see around.
Avery's platoon is on guard in the kitchen
for some bandit's been stealing the presidential milk
and eating the meat and shredding the silk.
Colonel Avery, the West Point cat.
Past midnight the door creaked wider
and the squad pounced on the intruder.
Avery escorted the prisoner to the court martial.
Said general to Avery `you have mistaken the thief,
for that is the cat of the commander in chief'.
Dishonorably discharged Avery, the West Point cat.
Avery is currently in retirement at an undisclosed location
in New England.

Every extinct species should have a memorial,
it might remind mankind to be more careful in future.
