Undergraduate
and Graduate Study in Mathematics
at Missouri S & T. You can earn B.S., M.S.,
and Ph.D. degrees in Applied Mathematics (B.S. and M.S.) and Mathematics
(Ph.D.), as well as a Master of Science for Teachers degree at Missouri S & T. You can focus on Statistics at all levels. The department is of moderate
size, upper level classes are small, and you will receive a great deal
of individual attention.
Solutions to the problems in the classic book Special Functions by Earl D. Rainville. Sylvester J. Pagano, long-time UMR/S&T mathematics professor, who spent four summers at Michigan where he got to know Rainville, wrote up solutions to about 85% of the problems in Rainville's book back in the 1950s and 1960s. Tom Cuchta is converting the solutions to electronic format, and I am supplying the missing solutions. We are nearing completion of this project.
A list
of all full-time faculty in the MSM/UMR/S&T Math Department from the founding of the Missouri School of Mines in 1871 through this year. If you know of any corrections or additions, please let me know.
Leon Hall and Stan Wagon, Roads and wheels, Mathematics Magazine 65 (1992), 283-301. This is an interesting paper in itself, and because of this paper, my Erdos number can be shown to be 3, and my Erdos number of the second kind can be shown to be 4.
Leon M. Hall, A forgotten nineteenth century mathematics journal, Missouri Journal of Mathematical Sciences, 16(3) (2004), 159-167. The journal in which the first English translations of Lobachevsky and Bolyai appeared in 1891 was published in Rolla.
Michael Dorff and Leon Hall, Solids in R^n whose area is the derivative of the volume, The College Mathematics Journal 34, (2003), 350-358.
Leon M. Hall, Special
Functions, Lecture notes for Math 483 at Missouri S & T. The notes are available as pdf files all together or chapter by chapter (Ch 1, Ch 2, Ch 3, Ch 4, Ch 5). Here is the table of contents. Here is the page with the graphs of the Bernoulli polynomials and here are two pages with graphs of the Jacobian Elliptic functions ( Jacobi 1, Jacobi 2).
