M.S.;, Ph.D.

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Qualified students with backgrounds in engineering, mathematics, or science are eligible for admission to the Program in Applied Mathematics. Study plans, drawn up to meet the needs of the individual student, encompass courses in mathematical methods and one or more fields of science or engineering where significant applications of mathematics are made. The applied mathematics faculty is involved in research that utilizes a variety of mathematical methods associated with asymptotic analysis, bifurcation theory, graph theory, numerical analysis, optimal control, ordinary and partial differential equations, probability and statistics, singular perturbations, stability theory, and stochastic processess. These methods are employed in the investigation of problems arising in biomechanics, combustion theory, diffusion processes, fluid mechanics, geophysics, interfacial phenomena, molecular biology, queueing theory, reactor theory, solid mechanics, statistical mechanics, transport theory, and wave phenomena.
