## About the Author

Adam Coffman is an Associate Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne. He is interested in geometry of all kinds. Recently, he has been studying the geometric properties of real objects inside complex objects: vector spaces, matrices, immersed manifolds, varieties, vector bundles, singularities, boundaries of open sets. He uses the tools of topology, for example the Euler number, to describe the large-scale structure of the objects, and methods of several complex variables, including power series, to describe the local geometry. He's also interested in abstract algebra and physics, and often uses the computer for symbolic manipulation and graphics.
