Andy Magid is the author of four books, about 90 research papers, (co) author of a book on Mathematics education, (co)editor of four volumes of conference proceedings and has supervised 10 doctoral dissertations in Mathematics. His primary research interests are in abstract algebra, especially in the theory of algebraic groups, discrete groups, and the applications of the former in the study of the representation theory of the latter, and in Galois theory of rings and differential Galois theory of fields.

Andy Magid received funding support for his research from the National Science Foundation from 1970 to 1989 and 2000 to 2002. In addition, he has been supported by the National Security Agency Mathematics Research Program 1987-1989 (R. Resco, co-principal investigator) and 1990-1999, by National Science Foundation Scientific Computing Research Equipment Grants in 1987 (with B. Gordon, S. Gutman, K. Lee and W. Ray) and 1990 (with E. Cline, R. Dipper, and B. Gordon), by the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation 1982-1984 and 1985-1988 (with A. Lubotzky), and 1990-1993 (with A. Mann) by a National Science Foundation Regional Conference Grant in 1989, and by an National Science Foundation US-Belarus Joint Workshop Grant in 1992.

He directed a project on 21st Century Mathematics Classrooms
funded by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education in 1990-1992, and
