International Research Journal Publishes Special Edition Dedicated to Mathematics Professor
Professor John Ryan, of the Department of Mathematical Sciences in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, recently had a special volume of the international research journal, Complex Variables and Elliptic Equations, dedicated to him.
The publication is the result of a conference titled, "A Colloquium in Honor of John Ryan's 60th Birthday,” which was held in his honor last year.
The edition, “Special Issue: Clifford Analysis-theory and Applications. On the occasion of John Ryan’s 60th Birthday,” can be found online and print copies are also being produced.
Ryan specializes in Clifford analysis, with a particular interest in the links between Dirac type operators and conformal structures.
He was the second scholar to ever receive a Higher Doctorate of Science from University of York, U.K., conferred in 2008. He was also a co-investigator on the first NSF grant given to fund a conference on Clifford analysis in 2014, and received the prestigious von Humboldt Fellowship from the von Humbolt Foundation to visit Technical University of Freiberg, Germany, in 1995.
Ryan is also frequently called upon by prominent universities to serve on doctoral examining committees, most recently at the University of Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia, in 2014 and previously for mathematics at the University of Montreal, Canada; Monash University, Australia; the Technical University of Freiberg, Germany; the University of Macau, Macau; and the University of Maryland, College Park.
About the Department of Mathematical Sciences: The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers degrees with focuses on applied math, pure math and statistics. Courses prepare students for careers in secondary education, actuarial science and industry and graduate school. Students will receive a broad, interdisciplinary education, highlighting the utility and value of mathematics in many careers and disciplines.
