CV, updated May 2013.
Here is a movie of the bifurcation locus in Per_1(A), inside the space of quadratic rational maps with marked critical points, as the multiplier A moves along a curve from A=2 to A=-4. The picture below is for A = 1.1 i. All images were generated with Dynamics Explorer, a program developed by Suzanne and Brian Boyd.
