Our Vertically Integrated Research courses engage teams of undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and professors in cutting edge research.
Within the Mathematics Department is a private computing lab for the use of instruction and specialized mathematics research software, such as Mathematica and Matlab. The local network supports a heterogeneous blend of Linux workstations, Windows clients, and Macintosh computers, as well as a 32 node Beowulf computing cluster, Access Grid videocollaboration environment, and three floors of multimedia equipped classrooms. The Mathematics Department works closely with LSU's Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) and Information Technology Services (ITS) departments, who have just completed the construction of a new campus supercomputer through joint efforts. General access computers are located around campus including many residence halls, the student union, and Middleton Library.
Our faculty and graduate and undergraduate students are supported by many state and federal grants, including an NSF VIGRE grant, an NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates grant, an NSF G K-12 grant, a US Department of Education GAANN grant, and LA Board of Regents grants funding several Board of Regents Graduate Fellowships.
