Welcome to Kathleen Shannon's web, a collection of
sites to support my teaching, research, service and other interests. If
you are interested in mathematical patterns; cellular automata; computer
graphics; visualization of abstract concepts, in particular abstract algebra;
Pascal's triangle; tilings; or just neat pictures, try the PascGalois
Project link. If you are interested in courses, syllabi, assignments,
etc. or college level mathematics instruction in general, try the courses
link. Otherwise, feel free to just browse . . .

Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Brown
University awarded May, 1985
Major area for doctoral qualifying exams: numerical analysis,
numerical methods of solving differential equations, approximation and
M.Sc. in applied mathematics from Brown University awarded June,
B.A. in mathematics and physics from the
College of the Holy Cross May, 1980
Minor Areas: real analysis and Hilbert spaces, classical and
modern control systems.
Thesis area: convex sets and the geometry of computation. Some
relationships between planar convex sets and their support functions are
explored. In particular, a limit of Lemoine processes leading to the Steiner
Point is presented and generalized to non-convex sets and collections of
