Research

research overview

  • Professor Walter works in two areas: 1) explaining relationships between mathematics and environmental subjects, and how each can be used to educate the public about the other -- as exemplified in the 2011 book, ``Mathematics for the Environment,'' and in the article on ``Earthquakes and Weatherquakes: Mathematics and Climate Change'' published in the November 2010 issue of the Notices of the American Mathematical Society; and 2) order structures, operators algebras, group duality, and group representation theory.

Teaching

courses taught

  • MATH 2400 - Calculus 3
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018
    Continuation of MATH 2300. Topics include vectors, three-dimensional analytic geometry, partial differentiation and multiple integrals, and vector analysis. Department enforced prerequisite: MATH 2300 or APPM 1360 (minimum grade C-). Degree credit not granted for this course and APPM 2350.
  • MATH 3001 - Analysis 1
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Provides a rigorous treatment of the basic results from elementary Calculus. Topics include the topology of the real line, sequences of numbers, continuous functions, differentiable functions and the Riemann integral.
  • MATH 8370 - Harmonic Analysis 1
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Examines trigonometric series, periodic functions, diophantine approximation and Fourier series. Also covers Bohr and Stepanoff almost periodic functions, positive definite functions and the L^1 and L^2 theory of the Fourier integral. Applications to group theory and differential equations. Department enforced prerequisites: MATH 5150 and MATH 6320. Instructor consent required for undergraduates.
