Houshang H. Sohrab, a native of Tehran, Iran, joined the faculty during the summer of 1984.  He took his B.S. & M.S. degrees at the University of Paris (France) and his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, all three degrees in Mathematics . His academic specialty was in Partial Differential Equations and Functional Analysis.  He was a Research Assistant at the University of Bonn in West Germany (80-81) and an Instructor of Math at the University of Kansas in Lawrence (81-84) before joining the Mathematics Department at Towson.

At Towson Dr. Sohrab has taught a wide range of courses in Analysis, Algebra, Probability and Statistics. He has published seven papers (five at Towson) and has submitted an eighth paper (to appear in the Rocky Mountain Journal of Mathematics).

Included in his scholarly and professional activities, he has:
  • Gave an invited talk at the prestigious Oberwolfach Institute in February 1986
  • Presented a paper at the 93rd annual meeting of the American Mathematical Society, in San Antonio, Texas (January 1987)
  • Gave an invited talk at an international conference on Differential Equations in Columbus, Ohio (March 1988)
  • Presented a paper at the 97th annual meeting of A.M.S., San Francisco (January 1991)
  • Presented a paper at the Special Session on Index Theory at the 98th annual meeting of A.M.S. in Baltimore (January 1992) and
  • Gave an invited talk at the Second Geoffrey Butler Memorial Conference in Differential Equations, at the University of Alberta (June 1992).
Houshang has been offered five consecutive summer stipends by the Faculty Development at Towson.  He has served in Applied Mathematics, Analysis, Student Welfare, and assessment committees as well as the distinguished Lecturer, Elections, and Continuing Studies committees.  Dr. Sohrab is currently serving in Analysis, Student Welfare, and Assessment committees.  Finally, he has coached the T.U. teams for the Virginia Tech. and the Putnam Mathematics Contests.  In the 1987 Virginia Tech. Contest, our contestant David Rauschenberg ranked 8th among 200 students.
