Among the topics are the ergodic theory
of hyperbolic groups, harmonic maps and integrable systems, left-orderability and exceptional Dehn surgery on two-bridge knots, the commensurability of knots and L2-unvariants, the number of hyperbolic 3-manifolds of a given volume, and 3-manifolds with Heegaard splittings of distance two.
He is a mathematician, specialising in ergodic theory

Looking at recent results in the area of ergodic theory
(the mathematical study of dynamical systems with an invariant measure) concerning the complexity of the problem of classification of ergodic measure preserving transformations up to conjugacy, the structure of the outer automorphism group of a countable measure preserving equivalence relation, ergodic theoretic characterizations with the Haagerup approximation property, and cocycle superrigidity, the author of this monograph realized that these apparently diverse results can all be understood within a unified framework.

Thus, we can say that our approach to the dynamics of the vector field is based on maximisation of the mass carried by the flow [6, 7], which is not exactly what is typically used in the ergodic theory
Other applications of almost periodic functions are, for example, in Statistics, Number Theory, the Theory of Spectrum of Bounded Functions, the Theory of Semigroups of Bounded Linear Operators, Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory

Yet, if morphodynamics is a definitely ergodic theory
, it is applied here to a closed ensemble of off-equilibrium components and the ensemble may itself operate near or far from equilibrium.

We argue that, contrary to some analyses in the philosophy of science literature, ergodic theory
falls short in explaining the success of classical equilibrium statistical mechanics.
