Applied Mathematics
Field Description
The graduate program in applied mathematics is based on a solid foundation in pure mathematics, which includes the fundamentals of algebra and analysis. It involves a grounding in the methods of applied mathematics and studies of scientific areas in which significant applications of mathematics are made. The field has a broadly based interdepartmental faculty that can direct student programs in a large number of areas of the mathematical sciences.
Many specialized or interdisciplinary programs can be designed for individual students, including, for example, a variety of possibilities in biomathematics.
The dissertation is normally a mathematical contribution toward the solution of a problem arising outside mathematics.
Students who are interested in this field may also want to investigate the related fields listed under Mathematical Sciences in "Opportunities for Study," pages 7-8.
