Mon Aug 22, 2016

John Shareshian studies problems in combinatorics that arise in or have consequences for other fields of mathematics. Combinatorics is the study of discrete, typically finite, mathematical structures. Such structures arise often in mathematics and the natural and social sciences, leading to various applications. For example, networks of various types are modeled by combinatorialists as graphs, which are simply collections of points, some pairs of which are considered to be related.

Letter From the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics of Washington University in St. Louis. We are a cutting-edge, research-oriented department comprising twenty five tenured and tenure-track scholars specializing in various areas of mathematics, including differential geometry, topology, real and complex analysis, algebra, algebraic geometry, combinatorics, and statistics. The faculty is augmented by three postdoctoral scholars, each having the title William Chauvenet Lecturer, who enhance the vibrancy of our environment.
