Tiglay to Discuss Mathematics of Waves

NEWARK, OH, January 10, 2018 —Every day we come across different phenomena that can be described as waves. The most familiar ones are water and sound waves. Microwave ovens, lasers, ship design, solar energy, traffic flow, bridge design and many engineering problems involve the study of waves. Feride Tiglay, Ph.D., assistant professor of mathematics, will explore the spectacular world of waves from a mathematical perspective at the next Faculty Talks Outside the Box presentation at The Ohio State University at Newark.

Her lecture will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018, at 5 p.m. in the Norman R. and Alethea E. Sleight Community Room located in the John L. and Christine Warner Library and Student Center, 1219 University Drive, Newark, Ohio 43055. It is free and open to the public.

Dr. Tiglay’s research is at the crossroads of analysis, differential geometry and mathematical physics. She develops and exploits analytic and geometric tools to study nonlinear partial differential equations (PDE) from mathematical physics.

During Faculty Talks Outside the Box, Ohio State Newark professors present informal discussions of their recent research as it relates to our society. The next talk will be held in late February with Chris Robinson, Ph.D., assistant professor of cognitive psychology.

The Ohio State University at Newark offers an academic environment that’s inclusive of diversity, challenging but supportive with world-renowned professors and access to Ohio State’s more than 200 majors. It’s where learning comes to life. Research, study abroad and service learning opportunities prepare students for their careers in ways they never expected.
