Research Interests for Robert Bryant

Research Interests: Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations and Differential Geometry

I'm interested in the geometry of partial differential equations (as always), but, more specifically, I have been thinking about conservation laws for PDE, Finsler geometry, calibrations, holonomy, and trying to learn more about Seiberg-Witten invariants and symplectic geometry.

Almost complex manifolds, calibrations, CR hypersurfaces, exterior differential systems, Finsler, Geometry, Differential, Global differential geometry, solitons
Areas of Interest:

exterior differential systems
differential geometry
algebraic geometry
Finsler geometry
