Mathematical analysis covers a wide range of different subjects. Areas currently active at Cornell include: dynamics, harmonic analysis, potential analysis, partial differential equations, geometric analysis, applied analysis, and numerical methods. In addition, we value the many interactions with other areas such as differential geometry, geometry, Lie theory, combinatorics, and probability.
Notable contributions of Cornell faculty to analysis include: Larry Payne’s work on ill-posed problems, Len Gross’s logarithmic Sobolev inequality, Strichartz’s estimates, James Eell’s work on harmonic maps (joint with J. Sampson), and Richard Hamilton’s seminal contribution to the Ricci flow.
