Paul E. Phillipson
Professor Emeritus. Ph.D. University of Chicago, 1962. Alfred P. Sloan Fellow 1965-67; European Molecular Biology Organization Research Fellow 1972-74; Visiting Professor, University of Vienna; Visiting Research Professor, Austrian Academy of Sciences.
Phillipson is interested in theoretical studies in nonlinear dynamics and
biophysics. Many nonlinear processes are encapsulated by differential equations
and by mappings. Research is directed toward development of computational
algorithms and analytic techniques designed to facilitate understanding
of solutions to these mathematical structures, and identifying the solutions
with dynamical processes found in macromolecular and physical systems.
Recent activities include:
- Application of map dynamics to chemical and physical processes
- Dynamics of autocatalytic reaction networks
- Mechanisms for bistability in biochemical systems.
- Neuron Dynamics
