Extra Information

My main research activities are concerned with series expansions and exact enumerations for models in statistical mechanics and combinatorics. Recent work include low-temperature expansions for the Ising and Potts models, low-density expansions for directed percolation, counting of self-avoiding polygons, lattice animals, meanders, and other combinatorial problems related to statistical mechanics.
