I am a Professor of Mathematics and currently Interim Chair of the Department of Mathematics, Staistics, and Physics.
You can find a list of my publications in my vita andlinks to some of my papers below under "Research Interests".
I am a managing editor of ETNA, Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis.



Teaching

"We all know that the real reason universities have students is in order to educate the professors" - John Archibald Wheeler, 1976



PhD Students

To see a (partial) list of Math PhDs along with thesis titles and advisors for me, WSU Math, and all who have up-to-date entries, check out the Mathematics Genealogy Project. It's amusing to explore.
