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.
