Meet Liviu, a Geometer/Probabilist at the University of Notre Dame
Show Notes

Liviu Nicolaescu is a Professor and the Director of Undergraduate Honors Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame. He is the co-organizer of the Felix Klein Seminar on Geometry and serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Gokova Geometry and Topology. He is currently ranked 61st on the all-time reputation boards of Math Overflow and recieved his PH.D. from Michigan State University under the supervision of Thomas H. Parker.

Liviu is a Geometer "at large" and a probabilist by accident. His field of expertise is global analysis with emphasis on the geometric applications of elliptic partial differential equations arising from gauge theory, symplectic geometry, and index theory for Dirac operators.

He is the author of several books, including:
"An Invitation to Morse Theory"
"The Reidemeister Torsion of 3-Manifolds"
"Notes on Seiberg-Witten Theory"

and most recently, he is the author of
"Notes on Elementary Probability Theory"
which we discuss at length in the podcast!

We'd like to thank Liviufor being on our show "Meet a Mathematician" and for sharing his stories and perspective with us!
