Applied Mathematics and Statistics

Program Description


The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics (AMS) offers two graduate degrees: a Master’s of Science in Applied Mathematics and Statistics and a Doctor of Philosophy in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. The master’s program is designed to prepare candidates for careers in industry or government or for further study at the PhD level. The PhD program is sufficiently flexible to prepare candidates for careers in industry, government and academia. A course of study leading to the PhD degree can be designed either for students who have completed a Master’s of Science degree or for students with a Bachelor of Science degree.

Research within AMS is conducted in the following areas:

Computational and Applied Mathematics

  • Study of Wave Phenomena and Inverse Problems
  • Numerical Methods for PDEs
  • Study of Differential and Integral Equations
  • Computational Radiation Transport
  • Computational Acoustics and Electromagnetics
  • Multi-scale Analysis and Simulation
  • High-Performance Scientific Computing
  • Dynamical Systems
  • Mathematical Biology

Statistics

  • Inverse Problems in Statistics
  • Multivariate Statistics
  • Spatial Statistics
  • Stochastic Models for Environmental Science
  • Survival Analysis
  • Uncertainty Quantification

Additional program information is available at the Applied Mathematics and Statistics website.
