# Research: Applied Math

## About Applied Math

Applied mathematics is a discipline that develops mathematical techniques and concepts which can be used in understanding the natural and social sciences. Researchers at UNCG carry out research in differential equations, control theory, game theory, stochastic processes, graph theory and combinatorial probability. Areas of application include modeling of reaction-diffusion processes, flexible structure, stealing behaviors, vector/host affinity’s effect on disease spread, and the behavior of random networks.
