Kristen Murphy Prospectus


Abstract: Spatial reasoning is required for many topics in undergraduate mathematics; graphing, curve sketching, transformations of functions, manipulation of objects in 3D, etc. Many topics covered in calculus require the student to use some sort of spatial skill to make

Algorithms for Computing the Inverse of a Curl

Abstract: In order to transform data from a numerical simulation of binary black holes in which only the magnetic field B is computed, to another simulation in which only the vector potential A is computed, ∇ × A = B must


WVU-China Graph Theory and Combinatorics Workshop


Every year, the Department of Mathematics at WVU hosts about 10 long term visitors sponsored by Chinese Scholar Council to conduct research in graph theory and combinatorics. To strengthen our collaboration with Chinese Graph Theory and Combinatorics Society, the Department

Some selection problems in the theory of viscosity solutions

Abstract:   I will explain some interesting selection problems in nonlinear PDEs. The basic question is about how to select one good solution out of many reasonable ones. A question of this type led to the

Polychromatic Colorings on Hypercubes, Complete Graphs, and Integers

Abstract:  Given a set S, and a set T of subsets of S, a coloring of the elements of S is called T -polychromatic if every set in T contains an element of every color. Let polyT (S) be the largest n
