Dr. Ikjyot Singh Kohli


I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at York University in Toronto.

My main area of research is in applied mathematics and applying dynamical systems theory in combination with stochastic differential equations and PDEs to understanding problems in relativistic cosmology. I completed my undergraduate degree in Physics and Mathematics from The University of Toronto completing a senior undergraduate thesis in Chaos and Cosmology under Professor Charles Dyer. I then completed my M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematical Physics at York University working under Professor Michael C. Haslam.

My papers and publications can be found on the arXiv.

I have also given some talks / presentations on the aforementioned topics. Some of these can be found below:

  1. 1.Stochastic Eternal Inflation in Heisenberg Universes - October, 2016 - Talk at Perimeter Institute, Waterloo, Ontario

  2. 2.My Ph.D. Oral Presentation / Public Talk- July, 2014 - York University

  3. 3. Dynamical Systems Methods in Early-Universe Cosmologies - May, 2014 - Talk at SONAD - Toronto, Ontario

  4. 4.Talk on Dynamical Systems Theory - February, 2014 - Cosmology Group at York University

Further, I have been teaching in The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at York since 2015. I have taught:

  1. 1.MATH 3271 - Partial Differential Equations

  2. 2.MATH 1300 - Calculus I / Analysis

For the 2016/2017 academic year, I will be teaching:

  1. 1.PHYS 6213 - Advanced Topics in Classical Mechanics (Graduate Course)

  2. 2.MATH 2270 - Ordinary Differential Equations

  3. 3.MATH 1013 - Differential Calculus I

Video Lectures: Here are some lectures on dynamical systems and cosmology that have been recorded:
