UTD coursebook for details of my past and current teaching.
My teaching before joing UTD can be summarized as follows:
2011/2012, 2010/2011: undergraduate course
"Mathematics for the students of the Department of
Chemistry" (Imperial College London).
15-lecture Ergodic theory course (4th and 5th years, Imperial College)
jointly with M. Rasmussen
substitute for Prof Crowdy, 9 lectures on Distributions and Fourier series (final year Mechanical Engineering undergraduates,
Fall 2009/2010: substitute for Prof Lamb, 4 lectures on Markov partitions from Dynamical Systems
course, (Mathematics undegraduates and graduates, Imperial College)
intensive from 5- to 10-lecture courses on various aspects of Modelling in Physics
and Mathematics (High School Teachers, Voronezh State Institute for Teachers'
Retraining). Several Rector's Teaching Awards.
