Prof Philip Rippon
Open University teaching
My main teaching contributions have been to the following Open University courses: MST121 Using mathematics, MS221 Exploring mathematics, M208 Pure mathematics, M337 Complex analysis, M832 Approximation theory.
These lie mainly in two areas:
- function theory, in particular the boundary behaviour of meromorphic functions and subharmonic functions;
- complex dynamics, in particular the escaping set of a transcendental meromorphic function, and its relationship to the Fatou and Julia sets of the function.
I am currently funded by the EPSRC (0.5FT) to work on the project "Baker's conjecture and Eremenko's conjecture: a unified approach" - see http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/ViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/H006591/1
