Trending articles (all are open access):
- Biological aggregation driven by social and environmental factors: A nonlocal model and its degenerate Cahn-Hilliard approximation (Bernoff and Topaz)
- Topological Data Analysis of Biological Aggregation Models (Topaz, Ziegelmeier, Halverson)
- Flipped Calculus: A Study of Student Performance and Perceptions (Ziegelmeier & Topaz)
Topology tutorial: Do you want to get involved in Topological Data Analysis but, like me, know no topology? I am proud to present "Chad's Self-Help Homology Tutorial for the Simple(x)-Minded" (and a version with exercise solutions left blank).
Non-book: I am writing something. I am definitely not writing a book. Whatever it is, it is called The Inappropriately Secret Life of Awesome College Math Teaching. File this under work-in-progress and check back frequently for updates.
Support: I'm grateful to be supported by National Science Foundation Grant DMS-1412674, Applied Dynamics and Topology of Aggregation Systems. The views expressed on my website are my own and do not in any way represent the NSF.
