Applied Mathematics

Applied Mathematics

Our mission rests in research, education, and scholarship.

Our faculty engages in research in a range of areas from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. By its nature, our work is and always has been inter- and multi-disciplinary. Among the research areas represented in the Division are dynamical systems and partial differential equations, control theory, probability and stochastic processes, numerical analysis and scientific computing, fluid mechanics, computational molecular biology, statistics, and pattern theory.

Gottlieb Lecture Series

The David Gottlieb Memorial Lecture Series

Yvon Maday will be the lecturer for this year's Memorial Lecture in honor of David Gottlieb.

Yvon Maday is Professor of Applied Mathematics at Sorbonne University and at the Institut Universitaire de France. He has been Visiting Professor at the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University for 15 years. He has held several important positions, including Director of the UFR of Mathematics at UPMC, Director of the Jacques-Louis Lions Laboratory and President of the French Society of Applied and Industrial Mathematics (SMAI). At the same time, he has developed an important research program on a wide variety of topics where he has supervised more than 40 PhD students and has written more than 200 articles in high level journals, as well as 6 books. Yvon Maday was an invited speaker at the ICM 2006 in Madrid, he was elected to the European Academy of Sciences in 2003. He was awarded the Jacques-Louis Lions Prize by the French Academy of Sciences in 2009 and in 2019 he received the ICIAM Pioneer Award for "his leading role in introducing powerful methods for numerical simulation, such as spectral methods, model reduction, domain decomposition, models and simulation in medical sciences, fluid-structure interaction, and ab-initio chemistry."

APMA Peer Advising

Our program provides a new and flexible type of advising: instead of assigning you to just one advisor, this website allows open access to our entire team of advisors in order to give you a broader range of perspectives.
