Professor and Chair of Mathematics
Marian Gidea joined Yeshiva University in 2013. He held previous appointments at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton (member, 2011-2013), Northeastern Illinois University (tenured professor, 2000-2013), Northwestern University (visiting assistant professor, 1999-2000), Loyola University Chicago (visiting assistant professor, 1997-1999).
Research interests include dynamical systems, chaos theory, celestial mechanics, and applications to mathematical physics, astrodynamics, mathematical biology, and financial mathematics. Teaching experiences include introductory as well as advanced mathematics courses.
