People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ---Maya Angelou
Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Laura K. Gross, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Bridgewater State University (BSU), part of the state-university system in Massachusetts. Send me e-mail at laura dot gross at bridgew dot edu, visit me in Conant 349, or call me at 508 531-2391.In Spring 2015 I am teaching Computational Linear Algebra (MATH 286), Applied Mathematics (MATH 416), Programming and Computer Algebra (COMP 203), and Applied Calculus for Business (MATH 144). Some classes I have previously taught at BSU include Elements of Precalculus (MATH 140), Precalculus with Trigonometry (MATH 150), Calculus I (MATH 151), Single Variable Calculus II (MATH 162), Calculus III (MATH 251), Differential Equations (MATH 316), Introduction to Analysis I (MATH 401), and Honors in Action (INTD 151). I have also taught linear algebra, algebra with business applications, mathematics for liberal arts, and Advanced Engineering Mathematics I and II at The University of Akron.
My research interests involve modeling a variety of physical systems using differential equations. I apply analytical and numerical techniques to study nonlinear dynamics, especially of reaction-diffusion equations, free-boundary-value problems, and dynamical systems. You can download .pdf versions of my publications or look at my whole curriculum vitae.

Thank you for visiting, and have a nice day.
