Research is an integral part of faculty activity
in the CSUN Department of Mathematics. Some of our
faculty have or have had NSF, NSA, and ONR support.
Recent grants that have been have been awarded include:
Maria-Rita D'Orsogna, *Hierarchical kinetic models
for chemically and hydrodynamically coupled
organisms* (2010-2013, $106,191, NSF), and
*Scalable, Stochastic and Spatiotemporal Game
Theory for Real-World Human Adversarial Behavior*
(2011-2016, $571,625, ARO); Al Sethuraman,
*Problems in Varieties of Commuting Matrices, Jet
Schemes, and Division Algebras,*
($121,031, NSF).
