The eight full-time faculty members of our applied mathematics group are active researchers in the theory of ordinary and partial differential equations, mathematical biology, celestial mechanics, climate modeling, atmospheric circulation, fluid dynamics, neural networks, transportation, mathematical physics, statistical analysis, optimization, and stochastic processes. To obtain their results, they use concepts and tools from real and complex analysis, advanced linear algebra, variational techniques, scientific computing, dynamical systems, topology, differential and non-Euclidean geometry, as well as nonlinear methods and microanalysis.
They also supervise post-doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate students, collaborate with visitors, adjunct faculty from our department, and campus colleagues who are experts in biology, biochemistry, earth and ocean science, physics, astronomy, and engineering. This group holds a weekly seminar where its members and associates communicate their results, which are then published in prestigious journals and top book series.
For all these reasons, their activity is fully recognized at the national and international level. Our department is proud that the applied mathematics group contributed towards elevating the University of Victoria to a select circle of the world’s academic institutions.
