PDE, Applied Mathematics, and Computation

The group in PDE, applied mathematics and computation is one of the strongest such groups in the country. Research covers a wide array of nonlinear phenomena and involves work ranging from pure analysis to scientific computation. There are two active seminars, the P.D.E. seminar and the Applied Mathematics seminar. Some of the faculty in this group also are involved in the Institute for Scientific Computing. We regularly have both visitors and post-docs in this area. In addition to support as an Associate Instructor, graduate students in this area are eligible for the Hopf Fellowship which supplies tuition and living expenses and relieves the student of teaching duties.
