Biography

Tom Carty rejoined Bradley University as a tenure-track faculty member in Fall 2013, having previously been a temporary instructor during the 2003 - 2004 academic year.  Prior to his return, he was an instructor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2006-2011).   He has a strong passion for teaching and, when successful, feels that teaching is the most rewarding aspect of his job. Since returning to Bradley, he has taught eight different courses and has overseen two Senior Projects.

Prof. Carty's research interest lie in partial differential equations, dynamical systems and mathematical physics. He is particularly interested in models that can be explored via spectral considerations of a low-rank perturbation of a self-adjoint operator. Current projects involve non-homogeneous transport equations (such as the Boltzman equation) and oscillator models demonstrating mutual entrainment.

Teaching

Prof. Carty uses Sakai for all courses.  Please see your Sakai course webpages for current course syllabi, announcements, resources and current office hours.
