Personal profile

Research Interests

Professor Abrams has broad scientific interests ranging from coupled oscillators to mathematical geoscience to the physics of social systems. He tried to approach these wide-ranging problems by creating greatly simplified mathematical models where rigorous analysis is possible, hopefully capturing some essential properties of the system. The work in different fields is generally connected by similar mathematical techniques drawn from the study of nonlinear dynamics.
