Applied Mathematics:

Real world applications have steered research in mathematics for centuries, and at McMaster applications involving differential equations are a central theme of active research. There are research groups in Applied Partial Differential Equation (nonlinear optics, phase boundary motion in materials, superconductivity, viscous flow, and water waves), Dynamical Systems (KAM theorems, bifurcation theory), Mathematical Biology (population ecology, epidemiology, neural networks), Mathematical Finance, and Numerical Analysis (wavelets and spectral methods).

Faculty in Applied Mathematics:

  • Stanley Alama - Nonlinear partial differential equations, mathematical physics
  • Lia Bronsard - Nonlinear partial differential equations, interface dynamics
  • Walter Craig - Nonlinear partial differential equations and dynamical systems
  • David Earn - Epidemiology, Ecology, Evolutionary Game Theory
  • Nicholas Kevlahan - Applied Mathematics, Turbulent fluid flow, wavelet methods
  • Dmitry Pelinovsky - Partial differential equations, nonlinear optics, solitons
  • Bartosz Protas - Applied Mathematics, Fluids & Turbluence
  • Gail S.K. Wolkowicz - Dynamical systems, bifurcation theory, population dynamics, mathematical ecology and epidemiology
