At present the most developed part of the research activity of the Department of Mathematics can be characterized as “Mathematical Modelling”. It comprises such fields as stochastic analysis, physiological fluid dynamics, and mathematical physics. Moreover, starting with the semester 2010-11 the Department of Mathematics will launch a new Double Major in Mathematics and Modelling Processes. In addition the department is currently engaged with UWI (St. Augustine, Trinidad) in a cross-campus collaboration in Symmetries of Differential Equations. The group presently includes Prof. Bhatt (St. Augustine) and Prof. Rodkina (Mona), who are jointly supervising a Ph.D. student based at Mona. Recently, the Department of Mathematics begun to be involved into the research in the area of in Mathematical Education, and we expect the formation of the research group soon.
The following research areas are currently active in the Mathematics Department
