Research Interests

Digital Library of Mathematical Functions, a major new Web resource
providing validated reference information on the special functions
of applied mathematics and mathematical physics that is intended as
a replacement for the venerable Abramowitz and Stegun Handbook of
Mathematical Functions.

Approaches, methods, and tools for mathematics on the Web, with emphasis on
semantic representation, mathaware search, interactive visualization,
and live generation of mathematical data.

Theory, application, and computation of special functions, with emphasis
on construction and testing of numerical software.

Levelindex computer arithmetic, an overflowfree alternative to
floatingpoint arithmetic that possesses
theoretical and practical advantages.
