About Me

Welcome,

P4E-Career_Fair_Anton_Mosunov-0004I’m Anton, currently a PhD student at the Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo (Canada), and a part-time researcher at ISARA Corporation. Here you can find all the information about my research, courses I’m teaching, and poetry (if you’re unlucky enough to understand this cyrillic nonsence).

Here are links to my CV and teaching dossier.

The name of the blog refers to a book by J. E. Littlewood.

Research interests

  • Diophantine approximation;
  • Diophantine equations (more precisely, Thue equations, Thue-Mahler equations, S-unit equations);
  • Cryptography (more precisely, SIKE);
  • Computational Number Theory;
  • Algebraic Number Theory;
  • Quaternion Algebras.

Education

  • Since 2014 — PhD in Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo (Canada), under the supervision of Cameron L. Stewart;
  • 2012 – 2014 — MSc in Computer Science, University of Calgary (Canada), under the supervision of Michael J. Jacobson, Jr;
  • 2011 – 2013 — MSc in Applied Mathematics and Informatics (Russia), St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics, under the supervision of Mikhail N. Kubenskiy;
  • 2007 – 2011 — BSc in Applied Mathematics and Informatics (Russia), St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics, under the supervision of Tatiana F. Pankratova.

Awards

  • March, 2018 — Amit and Meena Chakma Award for Exceptional Teaching by a Student, University of Waterloo (file1, file2file3);
  • September, 2017 — Award for Outstanding Teaching by a Graduate Student, Department of Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo (file1, file2);
  • October, 2016 — Letter of Appreciation, Faculty of Engineering, University of Waterloo (file);

    Teaching evaluation for Anton Mosunov (written by his anonymous student in PMATH340):
    Anton is a fabulous teacher. His lectures are clear, organized, and easy to follow. He is a very knowledgeable guy and always welcomes questions and doubts. Moreover, he is always enthusiastic to tell you about cool facts in mathematics, such as Diophantine approximation and elliptic curves, where he is an expert. As a kind and generous guy, he posts his lecture videos for those who miss his class, and he makes fair exams. Still, his attendance rate is very high for an 8:30 morning class, simply because people enjoy his lectures and love him so much. As a fan of Anton, I got interested in number theory because of his class, took analytic number theory a semester later, and finally managed a URA position with Yuru on circle methods when I was still a sophomore. Arguably Anton is one of the best lecturers in this department.
