Dr. Barker researches the stability of traveling waves in conservation laws, reaction diffusion equations, and other evolution systems. His research on the mathematics of waves has implications in physics.
Dr. Chow researches finite element methods, flows in porous medium, nonlinear partial differential equations, superconvergence, and parallel and distributed computing. He also studies acoustics, harmonics, and wave propagation. His research in diffusion has applications in petroleum reservoir simulation and contaminant transport in groundwater.
Dr. Dallon uses mathematical models to study amoeboidal cell motion. As cells move, they interact with other cells or an extracellular matrix, giving the microscopic motion macroscopic effects. This research is particularly relevant in understanding wound healing and scar formation.
Dr. Evans uses differential equations to model various activities within mathematical biology, including collagen contraction and cell motion. She has also done considerable work with B-splines and T-splines in computer graphics.
Dr. Glasgow researches integrability, electromagnetic theory, and the structure of quantum filed theories. His research has led him to cross-departmental collaborations focusing on theoretical optics, free energy, and other topics.
Dr. Roundy applies mathematical techniques to optimize various business operations, specializing in inventory management. Dr. Roundys research has applications in mathematics, business, and engineering.
