The Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Case Western Reserve University is an active center for mathematical and statistical research. Faculty members conduct research in algebra, analysis, applied mathematics, asymptotic statistics, Bayesian statistics, convexity, dynamical systems, geometry, imaging, inverse problems, life sciences applications, mathematical biology, modeling, numerical analysis, probability, scientific computing, spatial statistics, stochastic systems and other areas.
During the opening event of Innovation Week, four faculty members were honored with Distinguished Research Awards. Among them was professor Erkki Somersalo, who has earned an international reputation as one of the pioneers of Bayesian inverse problems, and whose research breadth ranges from theoretical partial differential equations to statistical computations, usually...
Case Western Reserve University mathematician, researchers at Canada’s York University look at bacteria that may harm themselves just to get rid of freeloaders
Bugged by freeloaders? You are not alone, and leeching off others is not just a human problem. In fact, it is not uncommon in the animal kingdom, where even some cheater species of bacteria exhibit such selfish behavior. An even more fascinating fact was discovered by a research team led...
