Rather than defining new mathematical objects and studying their features, research in applied mathematics aims to employ or adapt existing mathematical concepts to help solve mathematical problems emerging from various fields, from physical and life sciences to engineering, social science, and, increasingly, everyday life.
Applied mathematicians at WVU are active in dynamical systems and statistics, biomathematics
(modeling and simulation of cellular processes), design and optimization of cooperative
robot behavior, and crowd dynamics.
