Mathematics Research at UGA

The faculty of the Mathematics Department are actively involved in creative research at the frontier of mathematical knowledge.  The department is loosely sectioned into the following research groups:

but a great deal of collaboration and communication crosses these boundaries.

Research Areas

Additive Combinatorics and Discrete Analysis Research Group at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia.
The algebra group has a vibrant training program for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. 
The algebra group has sponsored three NSF Postdoctoral Fellows: Wayne Wheeler (1996-98), David Hemmer (2001-03) and Jonathan Kujawa (2003-07). If you interested in applying to the Department of Mathematics at UGA for graduate studies or a postdoc, please do not hestitate to contact one of our faculty members.
Some focus areas of the Algebraic Geometry Research Group are moduli spaces, minimal model program, K3 surfaces and abelian varieties, combinatorial algebraic geometry. The group members also share a wide circle of interests with connections to arithmetic geometry, symplectic geometry and toplogy, combinatorics, and representation theory.
The Applied Mathematics Group in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia has scientific interests in Approximation Theory, Computational Math and High Performance Computing, Control Theory and PDE control, Dynamical Systems, Mathematical Biology, Mathematical Ecology, Mathematical Finance, Machine Learning, Numerical Solutions to PDEs, Signal, Image and Video Processing, Sparse Solutions of Linear System, Energy Minimization Problems and Mathematical Models for Collective Behavior. The Applied Math group members are currently investigating various topics including stability in population dynamics models, network analysis, microbial community analysis, compressive sensing, deep learning for data approximation, stochastic filtering, multivariate spline methods for various applications, numerical methods for kinetic equations, existence/uniqueness/stability of energy minimizers and long time behavior of models for collective behavior.
The interests of the Geometry research area group at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia revolve around differential geometry, broadly construed. We have a weekly seminar that meets on Fridays at 2:30.
The current webpage of the Topology group is <a href="">here</a>

Each summer since 1961 we have hosted the Georgia Topology conference and every eighth year it's "the big one", a 2-week long festival of topology which we call the Georgia International Topology Conference.  For additional information see our conference webpage.
