Greg Lyng joined the University of Wyoming faculty in 2005. He came to the University of Wyoming from the University of Michigan.
He grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana (the one-time magnet wire capital of the world). Outside of mathematics, he enjoys skiing, ruminating on the New York Times crossword puzzle, drinking good coffee, and passionately following the (mis)fortunes of the Indiana University men's basketball team.
His mathematical interests are primarily in partial differential equations. At the heart of most of his work is the desire to understand the behavior of solutions of certain nonlinear partial differential equations which arise as models of physical phenomena. These investigations typically employ various techniques and ideas from rigorous real, complex, and functional analysis; numerical computation; dynamical systems; and modern asymptotic methods. Indeed, many of his research projects combine elements from several or all of these mathematical disciplines.
