The Partial Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems Group falls under the field of mathematical analysis, which is a broad branch of mathematics that encompasses many fields, generally sharing a basis in calculus. Historically, analysis has played a crucial role in solving problems in physics and engineering; recent years have seen surprising applications to solve problems in other mathematical fields like the Poincaré Conjecture in topology.
