During the fall I will teach
I am contact person for the specialization discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science in the
master program in mathematics at KTH.
Prime numbers on my bathroom wall!
Research interests: Combinatorics, both pure and in relation with algebra, topology and
probability. I enjoy when the problems arise in other fields such
as biology, computer science and theoretical physics. Recently I
have been stimulated by mathematical questions coming from electoral

Matematik och demokrati (In Swedish): Papers I have written on electoral
systems. In particular a presentation of why the method by Webster/
Sainte-Laguë (uddatalsmetoden), which is used
for distributing seats in the
Swedish parliament proportionally to the number of votes, is a reasonable
method. Also papers to aid the
"Valprövningsnämnd" in decisions on whether to have reelection or not
after the 2010 elections in Sweden.
