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 2014 I am teaching Single Variable Calculus II (MATH 162-003), Applied Calculus for Business (MATH 144-001, -002, and -003), and Applied Mathematics (MATH 416-001). I have previously also taught Precalculus (MATH 100), Elements of Precalculus (MATH 140), Precalculus with Trigonometry (MATH 150), Calculus I (MATH 151), Calculus II (MATH 152), Calculus III (MATH 251), Differential Equations (MATH 316), Introduction to Analysis I (MATH 401), Programming and Computer Algebra (COMP 203), and Honors in Action (INTD 151) at BSU. I have 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 spanning combustion, optics, liquid crystals, and polymers 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.

Check out local activities in southeastern Massachusetts.

Thank you for visiting, and have a nice day.
