The program is flexible; students can concentrate on applied mathematics, such as differential equations and numerical analysis, or on other applicable techniques in mathematics. Scientific computing is an important part of applied mathematics, so it is often a part of student training and dissertation research.
Prospective students should have a desire to apply a mathematical science (mathematics or statistics) to relevant problems in another area.
Students take a qualifying examination over three of the four core course sequences required for the Ph.D. (analysis, differential equations, numerical analysis, and topology). They also take a comprehensive examination related to their intended research area.
- Faculty members help each student plan a course of study that is consistent with the student's background, interests, and goals.
- These individual programs are designed to help students develop expertise in methods of applied mathematics and build a good foundation in related topics of theoretical mathematics. The individual programs also provide sufficient knowledge in an outside area to enable students to use mathematical techniques in that area.
- Students can arrange their study plans to earn a master's degree from another department after they complete part of their plan. Students find suitable thesis problems and supervisors with the help of the faculty.
