Areas of research
At the department of Mathematics we have active research groups in mathematics, applied mathematics, and mathematics education.
In mathematics we do research in algebra, analysis, and combinatorics. In applied mathematics we have a group working on ill-posed inverse problems and the solution of equations using the Discrete Functional Particle Method.
Mathematics education can be regarded as a specific application of mathematics in which questions about teaching and learning specific to mathematics are studied. Members of the group focus their research on how mathematical proofs are included and treated in text-books, issues of mathematical knowledge for teaching, the meaning of mathematical reasoning and designing for interactive teaching in mathematics. The group of mathematics education plays an active role within the teacher program and is engage in several research-based school development projects.
