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.

Associate Professor Caroline Klivans was featured on "Top Influential Mathematicians Today" along with 25 influential mathematicians for her contributions to chip-firing games and sandpile models. Chip-firing games are an important method in developing and understanding the properties of finite structures, which have implications for fields beyond mathematics. Professor Klivans is seen as the leading authority on the subject.
