Ghosts of Maxcy Hall

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Physics at the University of New Haven for Fall Semester 2016.

Our goal is to assure that the Department is a driving force in the mathematical sciences, and that it is a resource to the University of New Haven in education. These goals define us, and let us stand out from so many other places to work or study. These pages extend our reach to broadly engage our community in the mathematical sciences.

The Department of Mathematics and Physics provides a wide range of courses covering all aspects of math and physics education from the introductory to the advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate level. The Department offers BA and BS options for degrees in mathematics and also offers minors in Mathematics and in Physics.

The Department is part of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) and consists of 15 full time faculty, 9 professional associate faculty, and 25 adjunct faculty and tutors. In addition, the Department operates a dual quad Xeon server for faculty and students as a computational resource.

Current Department Topics and News

11/19: We are pleased to announce that starting in Spring 2017 we will be accepting students to a much anticipated update of our BA and BS in Mathematics Programs. These provide for greater flexibility and a wider range of curriculum options. The programs follow the tradition of our existing BA/BS programs, but expand opportunities for undergraduate research and hands-on-learning. Check these out under the Dept Catalog info on the right navigation bar.

07/25: It has come to our attention that Prof. Reza Sarhangi passed away earlier this month. Reza's monumental contribution was his singlehandedly establishing the highly successful and internationally recognized Bridges Organization, which connects people all over the world who study relations between Mathematics and Arts: Music, Art, Architecture, Education, and Culture. He was the president of the organization and they will have their nineteenth conference in August 2016 in Finland. There is a memorial online at Elmeny muhely (Experience workshop). Prof. Sarhangi gave a seminar on the Art of Mathematics and Interlocking Polygons on October 18, 2012, and a workshop on Geometric Constructions of Mosaic Design On October 19, 2012 at UNH. He was appreciated, and he will be missed.

04/27: The Department participated in the CAS Awards Ceremony presenting awards to Brian Dina, Mark Herde, Anthony Mastromarino, and Cassandra Pray. Congratulations are due these students.

03/14: All Girls Math Camp 2016. The math camp for girls is a six-day summer camp whose curriculum includes seminars by University of New Haven faculty on special topics in mathematics and computer science and is hosted by Yevgeniya Rivers, Math Zone Director, and Yasanthi Kottegoda to encourage more wowmen to consider career options in mathematics and computer science.   More ...
