Our Faculty

Hanfeng Li has co-authored a new book with David Kerr, entitled, Ergodic Theory: Independence and Dichotomies. The book provides an introduction to the ergodic theory and topological dynamics of actions of countable groups.
Stephen Cavior is the longest serving professor in the history of our department, giving 50 years to UB Math before his 2013 retirement.
Work by UB mathematician Gino Biondini, builds on centuries of research devoted to using math to describe the physical world. See UB REPORTER Research News.

Mathematician Bill Menasco studies knot theory, a field that is esoteric to many but could have applications in surprising areas.

Hanfeng Li has received the UB Exceptional Scholar Sustained Achievement Award for outstanding research over the past several years. His publication "Soficity, amenability, and dynamical entropy" is forthcoming.
Sarah Muldoon joins us in August 2015, coming from the bioengineering department at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research involves novel techniques and measures to investigate and quantify the role of network organization in brain function.
Li Wang joins us in January 2016, coming from the mathematics department at the University of California Los Angeles. Wang recently published An asymptotic-preserving scheme for the semiconductor Boltzmann equation toward the energy-transport limit.
