Scott Kaschner is an Associate Professor and the Department Chair in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Butler University. He earned a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Purdue University (at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis) and did a postdoc at the University of Arizona. His primary research area is complex dynamical systems in one or several variables; he also does work in operator theory, undergraduate mathematics education, professional development for mathematics educators, and mathematical biology.
Amber Russell is an Associate Professor in the Mathematical Sciences Department at Butler University and the current Director of Butler’s Engineering Dual Degree Program. She received her Ph.D. in Mathematics from Louisiana State University. Her research area is geometric representation theory, but she particularly enjoys studying the combinatorics associated to Springer theory. She was a postdoctoral researcher for the Algebra Research Group at the University of Georgia, where she first taught Linear Algebra, both an applied and a theoretical version. She is responsible for all unicorn images in this text, including the really unfortunate original one in Chapter 2.
