Professor Michael Beals is interested in the mathematics of wave phenomena, which technically is called the study of hyperbolic partial differential equations. But really he is interested in all of mathematics, and teaches everything from Calculus and more advanced analysis courses to Linear Algebra and more advanced algebra courses to a special "Topics in Math for the Liberal Arts" designed for potential elementary teachers. He also helps the SAS Honors Program find departmental honors courses each semester! Professor Beals had served as Vice Dean for Undergraduate Education in the School of Arts and Sciences for the last 20 years.
