Michael Usher

I am an Associate Professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of Georgia.
My email address is [my surname]@math.uga.edu.


My research generally deals with symplectic topology, the study of global questions relating to spaces equipped with the geometric structures that lie at the root of classical mechanics.  


This semester, I am teaching a topics course on area-preserving maps of surfaces and symplectic geometry; here are a syllabus and lecture notes for the start of the course.

Here are links to webpages for older courses (for more recent courses I have generally used ELC instead of a webpage).
