Applied Mathematics

Faculty and students working on the applications of mathematics are an integral part of the Department of Mathematical Sciences; there is no formal separation between pure and applied mathematics, and the Department takes pride in the many ways in which they enrich each other. Researches in applied mathematics focus on ordinary and partial differential equations and their numerical solution, mathematical biology, scientific computing, mathematical image processing, stochastic simulation, financial mathematics, complex networks, and nonlinear complex systems.
