Stephen BricherDepartment: Mathematics
Education: Ph.D., Mathematics, University of Colorado at Boulder, 1991. B.A., Mathematics, Linfield College, 1986, Summa cum Laude.
Academic Interests: Dr. Bricher's research interests are in the area of nonlinear-partial differential equations, which can be used to model a myriad of physical phenomena. A few examples are: neuron activity, thermal combustion and flame propagation, the microstruture of metals, turbulence and weather patterns. He has published several papers on mathematical problems related to combustion, and has presented his work at national and international mathematics conferences. Dr. Bricher teaches a course in nonlinear differential equations and dynamical systems that prepares students to work with him on collaborative research projects. Projects in the past have culminated in student presentations at national mathematical meetings. He regularly teaches courses in calculus, analysis, differential equations, and probability and mathematical statistics. He advises physics theses and often helps science students with their mathematical questions. Dr. Bricher enjoys advising students that share an interest in mathematics.
