RTG Dynamics, Probability and PDEs in Pure and Applied Mathematics

This NSF supported Research Training Group (DMS-1645643; September 1st 2017-August 31 2022) provides research training at the nexus of dynamics, probability, and PDEs. Two themes are emphasized: the interplay between theory and applications, and the importance of communicating mathematical ideas across fields and to diverse audiences.

This project is led by Steve Strogatz (PI) and Tim Healey, Laurent Saloff-Coste, Genady Samorodnitsky and Alexander Vladimirsky (co-PIs).

Centered around the graduate fields of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics and the Center for Applied Mathematics (CAM), the project will also involve faculty and students from the graduate fields of Computer Science (CS), Operation Research (OR) and Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (TAM).
