In Autumn 2012 I will lecture in the the DTU 1st year course 01005: Mathematics 1: Linear and Differentiable Structure.

In the 3-week period 2-19 January 2012 I conducted the course 01330: Mathematics 3: Advanced Engineering Mathematics

2009-2011 I lectured in the course 01332: Mathematics 2: Differential Equations and Infinite Series.

In 2010 I received the DTU Teaching Award

I supervise 1 graduate student:

Louis Pedersen, who works as an industrial phd on the dynamics of pavement beneath rolling wheels


I lecture at the University Extension in Copenhagen ("Folkeuniversitetet"). Here are some pdf versions of lectures I have given there.

Lecture on the Golden Section (see also the links below)

Lecture on Kepler's Laws

Lecture on Differential Equations and Dynamics

Lecture on the early evolution of Relativity


I visit high schools and speak about the excitement of mathematics, the natural sciences, and technological research.



In 2001 I appeared briefly in a TV-programe which discussed some of the mathematics associated with patterns in nature.



The surfer interested in more details re the answer to the question posed on the image above (i.e., many more details than is given in the tv-program) is referred to the superb web page of R. Knott , University of Surrey.
