Professor Van Fleet’s research centers around wavelets, spline functions and approximation theory.  He has authored two books on wavelets and is currently working on a text that introduces spline functions to undergraduate students.  He is co-organizing (with collaborator Peter Massopust from the Technical University of Munich) the special session “Higher Dimensional Splines: Variation on a Theme” at the 2014 International Conference of Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics (http://www.icnaam.org) in Rhodes in September 2014.
