Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
Dr. Nicholas Baeth
Associate Professor of Mathematics
Ph.D., University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Interest Areas: Commutative Algebra
Dr. Baeth, a faculty member since fall 2005, received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. His doctoral work, in the area of commutative algebra and representation theory, was conducted under the direction of Dr. Roger Wiegand. Before starting graduate school in Nebraska he received bachelor degrees in mathematics and computer science from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA.
Nicholas taught several undergraduate mathematics courses while a graduate student at Nebraska. These courses included college algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and contemporary mathematics. At Central Missouri, Nicholas teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in the area of modern algebra as well as calculus courses and courses satisfying the General Education requirements.
Dr. Baeth’s research specialties are in the fields of commutative algebra and the representation theory of local rings. He has written papers on these topics and has given several invited talks at regional, national and international symposia. His current research interests also include the study of non-unique factorization in commutative monoids
