Research interests

Recently I was contracted to write a book monograph on Vector Partitions and the Visible Points for Chapman and Hall Publishers. My motivation is to cover classical Integer Partitions, partitions in Statistical Mechanics Solved Models such as the Hard Hexagon, and bring this to a research level with the Visible Point Vector identities I found some years ago.

Along the way, we meet new relationships and identities involving Plane Partitions, Ono's exact Partition Formula, Polylogarithms, generalized Euler Sums and Mordell-Wittam-Tornheim ensembles. I expect the book to run to 300 to 400 pages and to be completed well prior to June 2022.

My high level table of contents, based on my draft pages to January 2021, gives you a sense of where the book is heading:

Bibliography

In 2006 I published an introductory paper for Dirichlet series analogues of q-series, which led me to arithmetical function identities encoding so-named quasicrystals. This area of research is still being developed, and I am drafting a monograph on this topic as well.

I therefore can say I am interested in the Theory of Higher Dimensional Partitions, Aperiodic Order, Dynamical Systems, Combinatorics, Discrete Geometry, Number Theory, Quasicrystal tilings and their Dirichlet series functions, and Mathematical Physics, and areas where these theories may overlap.

In 2019 I wrote a paper generalizing the q-binomial theorem into a Euclidean n-space formula with a view to formalising an approach to vector partition theory. (See https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.07526) The substance of an updated version of this paper has led to my writing the above detailed book monograph project on Vector Partitions and the Visible Points.

I am also Manager of the almost 40K member LinkedIn Number Theory Group located at https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4510047/. I have posted many brief mathematical problems and news stories at graduate and research levels over the past seven years in that forum. An informative post in that group is http://bit.ly/3a6Wyhc.

POEMS: 
In 2010 I published Words in Common, which is a collection over decades of journal/magazine/anthology published poems partly funded by the Australia Council for the Arts many years ago. The book was officially launched by Professor Kevin Brophy from University of Melbourne, Creative Writing Department. It was edited by Associate Professor Trevor Code from Deakin University.
