Our faculty are internationally recognized leaders whose external federal funding on active accounts in 2016 eclipsed $25 Million from numerous sources, including NSF, NIH, DOE, NSA, ONR, AFOSR, and the Department of Education. Our faculty include numerous fellows of the AMS and SIAM, working in research areas grouped into: 1. Algebra, Geometry, and Topology, 2. Analysis and Partial Differential Equations, and 3. Applied and Computational Mathematics, with much overlap spanning many subfields. We support over 70 graduate students through research and teaching assistantships, and our graduating undergraduate math majors have reached 140 per year. We run many exciting weekly seminars and colloquia. Learn More »

Deterministic PDE evolution (Klein-Gordon equation) with stochastic initial conditions:images by Katie Newhall
Social and biological contagions are influenced by the spatial embeddedness of networks. Historically, many epidemics spread as a wave
across part of the Earth’s surface; however, in modern contagions long-range edges—for example, due to airline transportation or communication media—allow clusters of a contagion to appear in distant locations. Here we study the spread of contagions on networks through a methodology grounded in topological data analysis and nonlinear dimension reduction.
