I am an independent researcher in the field of cosmology. Since 1988 I have been loosely affiliated with Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts and do my research there and at the University of Massachusetts.

I am primarily interested in fractal cosmological models that involve discrete self-similarity. For approximately 30 years I have worked on a particular model referred to as the Self-Similar Cosmological Paradigm.

A 2-part review of this paradigm has been published in the International Journal of Theoretical Physics, Vol. 28, No. 6, pgs. 669-694 and No. 12, pgs. 1503-1532, 1989. These papers are available at this website.

The initial purpose of this website is to provide interested persons with access to my papers on this and related topics.
