Research Opportunities

Graduate students are afforded the opportunity to focus their studies in a chosen area of mathematics and to participate in the exciting enterprise of conducting original research. Because of the breadth of the faculty's interests, it is possible to carry out investigations in many fields of pure and applied mathematics. In addition to traditional subjects, there are more contemporary areas of research that are part of the program. They include computational mechanics, large-scale scientific computing and supercomputing, combustion, and the modeling of biological, ecological, and financial processes.

Browse through the ongoing department research projects and contact the faculty members who specialize in your areas of interest.  We want to hear your ideas.
