Invariants of graphs
(1996)We address a classical problem in low dimensional topology: the classification of tamely embedded, finite, connected graphs $G$ in $S\sp3$ up to ambient isotopy. In the case that the graph $G$ is homeomorphic to $S\sp1$, ... 
Invariants of graphs

Inverse spectral problems with incomplete knowledge of the spectrum
(1999)To solve an inverse spectral problem, we try to discover an operator of a certain form that has a prescribed spectrum. In this thesis we proceed in two different settings, both times considering the potential function as ... 
Inversion Formula for Continuous Multifractals
