Dr. MacDonald works to better understand collections of matrices or operators, specifically their properties and structure. With widespread applications in all the disciplines of science, matrices are arrays of numbers and realizations of linear transformations that act on finite-dimensional spaces while operators are the infinite-dimensional analogues of matrices.
