Dr. Hackborn came to Augustana in 1984. His teaching areas include calculus, linear algebra, mathematical modelling, numerical methods, and computer database systems. Dr. Hackborn likes to impress upon students both the utility and beauty of mathematics, and the important role mathematics has played in the development of the modern world. His research interests include applied mathematics (especially fluid dynamics) and chaos theory (the study of the surprising patterns and apparent randomness present in some basic processes of the natural world).
