Research Interests

Dr. Ted Cox's primary research focus is nonlinear wave-propagation phenomena. Particular interests include resonant acoustic oscillations, dense gas dynamics, non-classical shock waves and thin film flows. The mathematics involved includes perturbation techniques, asymptotic analysis of partial differential equations, dynamical system theory and numerical simulations.
