Hajimemashite. My name is Daniel Moskovich, and I’m a JSPS postdoc at RIMS in Kyoto University. I’m originally from Jerusalem, Israel. I moved to Japan for graduate school, where I finished my PhD in 2006 under the tutelage of Tomotada Ohtsuki.
I’m a quantum topologist, but most things I actually work on are pretty classical. I think that the major barrier to really understanding quantum invariants is that the classical aspects aren’t sufficiently well understood. Most topics I would like to post on are related to this divide- I’ll explain classical ideas and recent developments which I hope will eventually clarify the nature of quantum invariants. I’ll try to choose topics which are relevant in other contexts as well.
