Michael Adams, associate professor of mathematics and member of Truman’s Mathematical Biology program, has published “Graph Decompositions for Demographic Loop Analysis” in the Journal of Mathematical Biology. In this paper, Adams extends a graph theoretic approach to understanding stage-based models of population dynamics. The results described in the paper relate directly to the questions Adams is investigating along with Michael Kelrick, professor of biology and director of interdisciplinary studies, and a group of talented undergraduates in mathematics, biology and computer science. The work of this team is supported by Truman’s NSF-funded “Research-focused Learning Communities in Mathematical Biology.”

Huping Ling, professor of history, has published two books recently: “Voices of the Heart: Asian American Women on Immigration, Work, and Family” (Truman State University, 2007) and “Chinese in St. Louis: 1857-2007” (Arcadia Publishing, 2007).

Jason Miller, associate professor of mathematics and director of the Mathematical Biology and STEP programs at Truman
, has been appointed to a three-year term to the Mathematical Association of America’s Science Policy Committee. The Mathematical Association of America is the largest professional society that focuses on mathematics accessible at the undergraduate level.
