Rony Touma

Associate Professor of Mathematics

Dr. Rony Touma is an associate professor of applied mathematics in the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics. He has been teaching at LAU since 2005.

Research Interests

His research interests include the development of central finite volume methods on Cartesian or unstructured grids for the approximate solution of systems of hyperbolic systems of conservation, and balance laws in several space dimensions. He is working on applications in astrophysics aerodynamics, and fluid dynamics.
