Analysis

Analysis is the study of functions, continuity and discontinuity, the infinite and the infinitesimal. At McMaster research in analysis deals with Harmonic Analysis and Partial Differential Equations. Harmonic analysis traces its roots back to Fourier series and is key for image segmentation, pattern recognition, and data compression. Current research involves oscillatory integrals, moment problems, and wavelets. Research in Partial Differential Equations includes fully nonlinear equations, free boundary problems, geometrical PDEs, degenerate elliptic and parabolic systems, and small divisor problems.

Faculty in Analysis:

  • 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
  • Jean Pierre Gabardo - Fourier analysis, functional analysis
  • Eric T. Sawyer - Harmonic analysis, partial differential equations and function theory

McMaster Academic Planner (MAP)

Launch the MAP

The MCMASTER ACADEMIC PLANNER (M.A.P.) is a multipurpose tool used to educate prospective and current Science students on the admission requirements, course/program options, research, experiential education & co-op opportunities available in the Faculty of Science .
