## Current Research and Publications

His research interests in mathematics
include applied partial differential equations
pertaining to heat conduction ("A Runge
Theorem for Solutions of the Heat Equation", *Transactions
of the American Mathematical Society*);
theoretical partial differential equations
involving the tangential Cauchy-Riemann
complex on a real hypersurface (*Communications
in Partial Differential Equations and Duke
Mathematics Journal*); applications
of Fourier analysis to the geometry of
lattice polyhedra ("The Ehrhart Polynomial
of a Lattic Polytope, *Annals of Mathematics*);
and "The Frobenius Problem, Rational Polytopes,
and Fourier Dedekind Sums", *Journal of
Number Theory*, (with Matthias Beck and
