(Chuck Gartland)

Division of Mathematical Sciences

As of August 2014, I am on leave from Kent State University, working as a Temporary Program Director (or "Rotator") at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, VA (Division of Mathematical Sciences, Applied Mathematics Program). For help, please contact the KSU Math Main Office at 330-672-2430.

My home department is the Department
of Mathematical Sciences in the College
of
Arts and Sciences at Kent State
University. The Department offers degree programs at the bachelor,
masters, and doctoral levels in *mathematics* and *applied
mathematics*. I am actively involved in the Applied
Mathematics Program.

My training is in numerical analysis. My current interests are in the
areas of computational applied mathematics, in general, and computational
problems in liquid crystals, in particular. My interest in liquid crystals
stems from the fact that there exists at Kent a major research institute
devoted to their study: the *Liquid Crystal Institute* (LCI).

I was a member of the program faculty of the *Chemical Physics
Interdisciplinary Program* (CPIP)
for 18 years (1996-2013). I also served for 4 years (2000-2004) as
Treasurer of the *International Liquid Crystal Society* (ILCS),
a professional organization with nearly 1,000 members, from more that 40
countries.

More information about administration, awards, grants, publications, and
students is available in my short vita.
