Andrew Kroshko

I am a PhD student in the department of computer science.  My main  research interests are the numerical analysis of IVPs (initial value  problems) for ordinary differential equations and the use of problem  solving environments for research that cannot readily be conducted in other ways.  My specific interests in the mathematics of IVPs are  dynamical systems and Runge-Kutta methods, along with the analysis  and algebra that is required.  My specific interests in computer science include software engineering and interface design for scientific computing.  My current research includes non-standard finite difference methods and developing new additive Runge-Kutta methods.

I have my undergraduate in mathematics and an masters in computer  science from the University of Saskatchewan. More general academic  interests include the history of and basic principles behind mathematical, statistical, and scientific methods in general.
