Departmental Research

The Department of Mathematics has an internationally recognized faculty and an active postdoctoral program, conducting research in both pure and applied mathematics. Research areas include algebraic coding theory, algebraic geometry, algebraic K-theory, combinatorics, commutative algebra, control theory, differential equations, dynamical systems, functional integration, geometric group theory, low-dimensional topology, mathematical biology, mathematical modeling, mathematics education, operator algebras, partial differential equations, and semigroup theory.

See our areas section for a more detailed look at our research.

We have hosted numerous programs and events. Some of these are:

David Logan: Applied mathematics
Published in 1987, this text has become one of the standards for methods of applied mathematics, and it has been widely adopted. It is now out in its third edition (2006).
