I work in the area of Applied mathematics, focusing on the solution of large sparse systems, implementation of parallel algorithms on a cluster computer, and on the Quasi-Stationary Distributions of Markov Chains. I have published papers in international journals and conferences, including a number of single authored papers.

Parallel Computing research is an increasingly important subject, which plays a central role in large scale scientific computing. My contribution deals specifically with the implementation and applications of computer algorithms in order for effective mathematical software in linear systems of equations in general and sparse matrix technology to be used as tools in science and engineering. Currently, I improved and implement some parallel algorithms for the solution of large linear systems on a cluster of silicon graphics workstations, analytical performance evaluation of database systems using colored petri nets, and comparative performance evaluation of client-server database systems. The results we obtained are published in international journals and conferences proceedings. Also, I am involved in two research groups, UNDP project in Distributed Modeling of Pipe Network and a proposal to HCST on Solid Waste Landfill in Jordan.

Quasi-stationary distribution of absorbing Markov chains appears as models for process in Medicine, Biology, and other fields. Our contribution deals with more than one absorbing state and we study the different types of quasi-stationary distributions conditional on an eventual absorption into a specified state. Such a case encounters for instance in some biological research where the absorbing states correspond to the extinction of certain characteristics. Currently, we investigate the limiting distributions and the Central Limit Theorem for absorbing Markov chains with absorbing subchains. Also, we are working in a research book in Finite Markov Chains.

I adapted a model in Three-Species Dynamics Food Chain. Interesting preliminary results are already achieved. Future experimental work is needed to support this model.

My plan is to continue working on the area of modeling, numerical algorithms, and the implementation of parallel numerical algorithms in various areas of applied mathematics.



Statement of Teaching

Mohammad Hasan Al-Towaiq

towaiq@just.edu.jo

I started my teaching experience at the Jordanian high schools from 1971 to 1978. After I got my Ph. D. (1985) I am involving in teaching, research, and curriculum development in five universities (Yarmouk, JUST, Al al-Byat, Al Bayan, and SQU).



Curriculum Development:

At JUST I was involved in a field study at Jordan in order to establish the undergraduate program in Mathematical Sciences. I played a central role in this study by direct contact with educational experts in Europe, USA, Arab States, and locally in Jordan. Several course syllabi in Applied Mathematics, Operation Research, and Computer Applications were prepared as a part of this project.

At YU I was involved in developing the graduate program in applied mathematics. Several course syllabi were prepared.

At Al al-Byat University I was involved in developing the undergraduate and graduate programs in Mathematics. Several course syllabi were prepared. Also I was the Vice President of the Scientific Research and Graduate Study Council and I made numerous contributions to this academic body.


At SQU I was involved in updating the undergraduate program in Computer Science. Several course syllabi were prepared.

Laboratories

On the time we established the Dept. of Applied Mathematics I established and organized two labs. The two labs are equipped with several simulation packages useful for teaching various courses in programming analysis and related Math. courses. Also, I was involved in establishing a parallel and distributed labs setup at both SQU and JUST. Also, I was involved in establishing another two labs for the Computer Science department.



Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is an enjoyable career for me, especially teaching Mathematics. Mathematics is a beautiful subject and a good tool to acquire the process of learning, thinking, computing, and communicating. As an applied mathematician, I always try to make the subject interesting. I ask questions, assigning group work to make students communicate with each other, I ask students to solve problems on the blackboard, and encourage them to ask questions.



In recent years I made great strides toward modernization of courses taught using E-Learning, computer technology and available software. We established computer labs for teaching, and we use books using Matlab and Mathematica. I assign weekly homework and projects where the students need to use MatLab, Drive, or computer programming. I always keep in mind that technology is just a tool and not a substitute for the process of deriving answers.
