### Research in the Mathematics Department

The Mathematics Department has internationally recognized programs in algebra, representation theory and group theory; classical, complex and harmonic analysis; partial differential equations, operator theory and functional analysis; low-dimensional geometry, topology and quantum field theory; analytic number theory; and mathematics education.

The *I-Center* was established to promote and advance an integrated approach to undergraduate and graduate research in the Mathematics Department at KSU.

The *M-Center* supports and promotes research in mathematical questions arising from string theory, in which mirror symmetry and tropical geometry play a central role.

The *Q-Center* was established to make College Algebra a modern, technologically rich course where more students are successful and satisfied; continue our research program on undergraduate education in quantitative disciplines; and maintain an outreach program to share our work with K-12 schools to help them better prepare students.
