Mathematical physics is an interdisciplinary research area that includes quantum mechanics, molecular dynamics, and acoustics. Pictured to the right is professor emeritus George Hagedorn, who was recently honored by a conference named for him, hosted at Virginia Tech:
Research Advisors for Mathematical Physics
Bio ItemNicole Abaid , bio
Dr. Abaid's research focuses on networked dynamical systems. She studies diverse biological systems, ranging from animal groups to brain networks, to inspire novel results in mathematical modeling and control.
Bio ItemPaul Cazeaux , bio
Professor Cazeaux's research deals with multiscale phenomena in mathematical physics and biology, with recent applications in quantum chemistry and condensed matter physics (2D materials).
Bio ItemAlex Elgart , bio
Professor Elgart primary research area is mathematical physics. The mathematical tools he uses mostly come from analysis and probability.
Bio ItemMark Embree , bio
CMDA Program Director Professor Embree studies numerical linear algebra and spectral theory, with particular interest in eigenvalue computations for nonsymmetric matrices and transient behavior of dynamical systems.
Bio ItemAgnieszka Miedlar , bio
Professor Miedlar conducts research in numerical analysis and scientific computing, with a focus on iterative solvers for large-scale linear systems and eigenvalue problems, and adaptive finite element methods (AFEMs).
Researchers of Mathematical Physics
Bio ItemFangchi Yan , bio
Dr. Yan studies partial differential equations (PDEs) that are motivated from the modeling of physical phenomena and real-world problems in general. His research focuses on the problem of well-posedness for nonlinear dispersive equations, including the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation and the nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation.
Bio ItemMichael T. Schultz , bio
Dr. Schultz conducts research in the intersection of algebraic geometry and mathematical physics.
Bio ItemTurker Topcu , bio
Dr. Topcu works in the field of computational science. His research involves developing algorithms and codes to solve partial and ordinary differential equations to simulate quantum dynamical systems.
