Dr. Goldstein received his B.A. in Mathematics from the Technion – the Israeli Institute of Technology – in January 1994 and recieved his Ph. D. from the Graduate Center of CUNY in May 2003.
Dr. Goldstein was a visiting scholar in NYU from 2003 until 2007.
Dr. Goldstein was a visiting reasercher in the Institute of Mathematical Sciences at the Stony Brook University in Spring 2005 and a Visiting Professor of Mathematics at the Stony Brook University in Fall 2005 and Spring 2006.
Non-Commutative Algebra and Modules Cohomology of Algebras, Computational Complexity and Algorythms
- Ph.D. The Graduate Center of CUNY, Mathematics, 2003
- B.A. Technion – Israel’s Institute of Technology, Mathematics, 1994
- This course is the first algebra course offered at the College. It includes such topics as algebraic representation, signed numbers, operations with polynomials, factoring, the solution of linear equations, the coordinate system, the solution of simultaneous linear equations of two variables, and graphing. This course is designed to prepare students for the CUNY Freshman Skills Assessment Test required for transfer to the upper division of CUNY, as well as for more advanced math courses. If a student passes MAT 12, the student should not register for MAT 51, since MAT 12 combines MAT 8 and MAT 51.
Students who passed MAT 12, MAT 14, MAT 41, MAT 51, MAT 56, MAT 160, MAT 161, MAT 56.5, MAT 150.5 cannot take MAT 161.5.
- This course covers basic statistics, including: measures of central tendency, measures of dispersion, graphs, correlation, the regression line, confidence intervals, the significance of differences, and hypothesis testing, including z-tests, t-tests, and chi-square tests.
Prerequisites: MAT 12, MAT 14, MAT 41, MAT 51 or MAT 161.5
- This course covers basic algebraic and trigonometric skills, algebraic equations, and functions. Topics include: mathematical induction, complex numbers, and the binomial theorem.
Prerequisite: MAT 56 or MAT 56.5

Complex Dynamics in one variable was the area of my interest when I finished my B.A. and during the first year of my Ph.D. I have returned to this amazing area during the time, I spent in the Stony Brook University and I work in it since then.
