Outer Partial Actions and Partial Skew Group Rings
We extend the classicial notion of an outer action
$\alpha$ of a group $G$ on a unital ring $A$
to the case when $\alpha$ is a partial action
on ideals, all of which have local units.
We show that if $\alpha$ is an outer partial
action of an abelian group $G$,
then its associated partial skew group
ring $A \star_\alpha G$ is simple if and only if
$A$ is $G$simple.
This result is applied to partial skew group rings associated with two different types of partial dynamical systems.

Hyperspace Dynamics of Generic Maps of the Cantor Space
We study the hyperspace dynamics induced from generic continuous maps
and from generic homeomorphisms of the Cantor space, with emphasis on the
notions of LiYorke chaos, distributional chaos, topological entropy,
chain continuity, shadowing and recurrence.

Cubic Polynomials with Periodic Cycles of a Specified Multiplier
We consider cubic polynomials $f(z)=z^3+az+b$ defined over
$\mathbb{C}(\lambda)$, with a marked point of period $N$ and multiplier
$\lambda$. In the case $N=1$, there are infinitely many such objects,
and in the case $N\geq 3$, only finitely many (subject to a mild
assumption). The case $N=2$ has particularly rich structure, and we
are able to describe all such cubic polynomials defined over the field
$\bigcup_{n\geq 1}\mathbb{C}(\lambda^{1/n})$.

Bowen Measure From Heteroclinic Points
We present a new construction of the entropymaximizing, invariant
probability measure on a Smale space (the Bowen measure). Our
construction is based on points that are unstably equivalent to one
given point, and stably equivalent to another: heteroclinic points.
The spirit of the construction is similar to Bowen's construction from
periodic points, though the techniques are very different. We also
prove results about the growth rate of certain sets of heteroclinic
points, and about the stable and unstable components of the Bowen
measure. The approach we take is to prove results through direct
computation for the case of a Shift of Finite type, and then use
resolving factor maps to extend the results to more general Smale
spaces.

Optimal Roughening of Convex Bodies
A body moves in a rarefied medium composed of point particles at
rest. The particles make elastic reflections when colliding with the
body surface, and do not interact with each other. We consider a
generalization of Newton's minimal resistance problem: given two
bounded convex bodies $C_1$ and $C_2$ such that $C_1 \subset C_2
\subset \mathbb{R}^3$ and $\partial C_1 \cap \partial C_2 = \emptyset$, minimize the
resistance in the class of connected bodies $B$ such that $C_1 \subset
B \subset C_2$. We prove that the infimum of resistance is zero; that
is, there exist "almost perfectly streamlined" bodies.

The Ample Cone for a K3 Surface
In this paper, we give several pictorial fractal
representations of the ample or KÃ¤hler cone for surfaces in a
certain class of $K3$ surfaces. The class includes surfaces
described by smooth $(2,2,2)$ forms in ${\mathbb P^1\times\mathbb P^1\times \mathbb P^1}$ defined over a
sufficiently large number field $K$ that have a line parallel to
one of the axes and have Picard number four. We relate the
Hausdorff dimension of this fractal to the asymptotic growth of
orbits of curves under the action of the surface's group of
automorphisms. We experimentally estimate the Hausdorff dimension
of the fractal to be $1.296 \pm .010$.

Growth and Zeros of the Zeta Function for Hyperbolic Rational Maps
This paper describes new results on the growth and zeros of the Ruelle
zeta function for the Julia set of a hyperbolic rational map. It is
shown that the zeta function is bounded by $\exp(C_K s^{\delta})$ in
strips $\Real s \leq K$, where $\delta$ is the dimension of the
Julia set. This leads to bounds on the number of zeros in strips
(interpreted as the PollicottRuelle resonances of this dynamical
system). An upper bound on the number of zeros in polynomial regions
$\{\Real s  \leq \Imag s^\alpha\}$ is given, followed by weaker
lower bound estimates in strips $\{\Real s > C, \Imag s\leq r\}$,
and logarithmic neighbourhoods
$\{ \Real s  \leq \rho \log \Imag s \}$.
Recent numerical work of StrainZworski suggests the upper
bounds in strips are optimal.
