M.S. in Mathematics
The department offers a rigorous course of study to introduce students to new modes of inquiry and to deepen their understanding and awareness of fundamental results and applications of the mathematical sciences. Students admitted to the graduate program with backgrounds other than Mathematics, such as Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, or Economics, may be required to complete prerequisite undergraduate courses before embarking upon graduate studies.
The research interests of the faculty include analysis, functional analysis, partial differential equations, game theory, mathematical logic and complexity theory, abstract algebra, representation theory, quantum groups, combinatorics, cryptography, algebraic coding theory, probability, finance theory, statistics, control theory, and operations research. Faculty members receive recognition for the quality of their research by regularly obtaining competitive grants from agencies such as the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and the National Security Agency.
