John Mallet-Paret

Professor of Applied Mathematics:
Room 205, 182 George Street
Phone: +1 401 863 2209
Phone 2: +1 401 863 2353


Ph.D., University of Minnesota, 1974




Professor Mallet-Paret studies ordinary and functional differential equations, specifically dynamical systems; differential–delay, lattice, and reaction–diffusion equations, as well as singular perturbations, pattern formation, and bifurcation theory. His current research topics include:

  • Traveling waves in lattice differential equations with spatial variations
  • Superexponential solutions in cyclic systems of delay-differential equations
  • Skew-product flows for linear functional differential equations
  • Differential delay equations and biological applications
  • Max-plus operators
