This is the homepage of Scott Wilson. I am an associate professor of
Queens College, and a member of the doctoral faculty of
Graduate Center, CUNY. I am also the Graduate Advisor for the Queens
College Masters in Mathematics program.
My research is in the geometry and topology of manifolds. I am particularly
interested in algebraic and geometric structures associated to manfiolds, and their
triangulations, as well as applications of these to physics. My most
recent work is on almost complex manifolds, differential K-theory, and holonomy on bundles and their
higher analogues. I am also researching and constructing computational fluid models.
