Evelyn Sander

No Longer a Graduate Student,

University of Minnesota

The Geometry Center


Evelyn does research on the dynamics: both of noninvertible maps and of PDEs. She is interested in hyperbolic sets, homoclinic tangencies, and other topological theory for noninvertible maps. She is also doing numerics and theory for the Cahn-Hilliard equation.

On June 5, 1996, Evelyn received a PhD from the University of Minnesota School of Mathematics. She is now a postdoc at the Center for Dynamical Systems and Nonlinear Studies at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. You can see her new Web Page. You can also see her thesis Hyperbolic Sets for Noninvertible Maps and Relations:

Until a year after her defense, Evelyn referred to herself as Dr. Sander. However, the time has finally come when she has become accustomed to the title. She originally thought there would be a grace period in which she would be "Dr. Evelyn." However, she finds that a year is enough of pretentious titles and has switched to being on a first name third person basis with herself.

See Evelyn's paper A New Proof of the Stable Manifold Theorem with Richard McGehee. It is Geometry Center Preprint GCG88. You can see the abstract and download the preprint. Otherwise, request a paper copy from admin@geom.umn.edu.

You can also see Evelyn's Curriculum Vitae.

During graduate study, Evelyn has become the world's first paid electronic journalist. From March, 1993 to June, 1995, she wrote about the Geometry Center for the Geometry Forum. Her articles are in Forum Articles.

In addition to the Forum, Evelyn is also involved in teaching the course Elementary Methods in Computational Geometry. See the Technology in the Geometry Classroom Course Materials.

Also see the Applets Page.

Evelyn now lives in Atlanta with her cat Marlowe, who complained that everyone else's cat is on the Web, and why isn't he. So here he is.
