NSF Math Grant

Funded by a five-year, $1.5 million National Science Foundation grant, a new Research Training Group in logic and dynamics in the Department of Mathematics will address fundamental questions in mathematics about why certain problems are more complex than others. The program will provide professional training to postdoctoral scholars and graduate students with research interest in this fast growing subfield of mathematics. It also will work to increase the number of undergraduate and advanced degrees in mathematics, as well as the number of women and ethnic minority mathematics students, by providing scholarships, paid research projects, annual conferences, research seminars and teaching workshops. Su Gao, professor of mathematics, is coordinating the project.
