Kurusch Ebrahimi-Fard 's Full Profile


Research Interest

I am motivated by the belief that innovative mathematical reasoning may lead to new insights and applications in many areas of science. I am interested in algebraic and combinatorial structures in applied mathematics and theoretical physics. More precisely, I am studying applications of combinatorial Hopf algebras, pre-Lie algebras, and Rota-Baxter algebras to control theory, numerical analysis and quantum field theory. The goal is to develop new mathematical models and methods to facilitate work in these fields. Paramount is the use of advanced combinatorial and algebraic techniques, as they allow for greater transparency, eventually leading to insights and more information. I am also interested in various aspects of the theory of dynamical systems as well as algebro-combinatorial structures in the theory of multiple-zeta-values.

Keywords: Rota-Baxter algebras; combinatorial Hopf algebras; Lie and pre-Lie algebras, numerical integration methods; control theory; theory of noncommutative symmetric functions; Spitzer type identities; Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula; Magnus and Fer expansions; perturbative quantum field theory; renormalization theory; dynamical systems theory; algebraic structure of multiple zeta values; theory of operads.
