Jim Wolper: Research

My training is in algebraic geometry (PhD, Brown, 1981), but I also have significant background in computer science amd subjects related to aviation.  I have a strong interest in applications of algebraic geometry and representation theory in coding and cryptography.

Information Theoretic Schottky Problem
 I am studying the statistical properties of period matrices of complex algebraic curves to determine to what extent the distribution of the periods determines (1) whether the matrix is in fact a period matrix [Schottky Problem] and (2) properties of the curve [Torelli Problem].
