Current Research Interests

Dr. Demers' field of research is dynamical systems and ergodic theory. In particular, he is interested in studying the statistical properties of discrete dynamical systems with some chaotic behavior. Some recent research problems have included the study of mathematical billiards and open systems - systems in which mass or energy is allowed to escape. These problems are motivated by and closely related to questions from mathematical physics and statistical mechanics. His research is currently supported by a three-year grant from the National Science Foundation.
