My name is Craig S. Kaplan, and I’m a Computer Science professor in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

I don’t do a particularly good job of creating boundaries between my work, my hobbies and creative pursuits, and my personal life. On this site you’ll find a mixture, with an emphasis on the main topics below. This site is most definitely incomplete—some additional information can be found on my increasingly outdated academic home page.

If you want to keep up with me in real time, you can find me at @cs_kaplan on Twitter.

Blog - Once upon a time blogging was popular. I maintain a relatively low-volume blog, usually focused on fun, accessible ideas in tiling theory and mathematical art, and various other things that catch my fancy.

Art and Design - My research is about applications of computer science and mathematics to the world of art and design. Sometimes I apply that interest directly in my own projects. The objects I create tend to use a fair amount of mathematics and programming. But in the work on this page I began …
Teaching - Most of the information for courses I’m teaching is stored in well known locations associated with those courses.  Every now and then I build my own course information from scratch, in which case I’ll post it here.
