The Department of Mathematics has four research groups.
and Number Theory
Nathan Jones: Number Theory
Milinovich: analytic number theory, especially the theory
of the Riemann zeta-function, L-functions, and multiplicative number theory.
Spiroff: commutative algebra, specializing in the topics of divisor
class groups and Chow groups.
Qingying Bu: functional analysis, in particular Banach space theory.
Gerard Buskes: functional analysis, operator theory, ordered algebraic structures.
Przemo Kranz: functional analysis, ordered algebraic structures.
Iwo Labuda: topological vector spaces, spaces of measurable functions, integral
operators, vector measures, set-valued maps.
Erwin Miña-Díaz: approximation theory, orthogonal polynomials.
Six PhDs were completed within the group since 2003. One is in progress.
James Reid: matroid theory and graph theory.
Laura Sheppardson: graph structures (including cycles, disjoint paths, and
Staton: graph theory; currently working on independence polynomials
Bing Wei: structural properties of graphs including cycles, graph minors and
Wu: matroid theory and graph theory (connectivity, matroid polynomials).
The group has sixteen PhDs completed since 2003. Four more are in progress.
Xin Dang: nonparametric and robust multivariate analysis.
Sunil Mathur: statistical bioinformatics, biostatistics, computational statistics,
Monte Carlo and nonparametric methods.
Sepehrifar: non-parametric life testing, reliability theory.
Since 2003, the group has produced eight PhDs. Three more are in progress.
Zhu Cao: number theory (including q-series, theta functions, and partitions).
Masayoshi Kaneda: functional analysis, especially operator spaces in the
theory of operator algebra.
Vlad Timofte: Approximation Theory, Symmetric Polynomials, Functional Analysis,
Shape Memory Alloys (study of mathematical models).
