Overview

Dr. Ryan Thompson joined the faculty of mathematics at UNG in the Fall of 2015. His current area of research lies in equations governing shallow water wave motion and answering fundamental questions such as existence and uniqueness of solutions, stability, continuity properties and spatial asymptotics. He has taught courses in calculus and the analysis of ordinary and partial differential equations. Dr. Thompson has also advised multiple senior projects in differential equations and the analysis of fluid motion.
