Covers the material from Math 2310 (multivariable calculus) plus topics from complex numbers, set theory, and linear algebra. Prepares students for taking advanced mathematics classes at an early stage. Credit is not given for both Math 2310 and Math 2315.
This course is a continuation of MATH 2315. Covers topics from linear algebra/differential equations/real analysis. Success in this course and MATH 2315 (grades of B- or higher) exempts the student from the math major requirement of taking MATH 3351 and MATH 3250. Students are encouraged to take more advanced courses in these areas. Prerequisite: MATH 2315.
This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject of mathematics.
Topics in probability selected from Random walks, Markov processes, Brownian motion, Poisson processes, branching processes, stationary time series, linear filtering and prediction, queuing processes, and renewal theory. Prerequisite: MATH 3100 or APMA 3100; and a knowledge of matrix algebra
A second course in ordinary differential equations, from the dynamical systems point of view. Topics include: existence and uniqueness theorems; linear systems; qualitative study of equilibria and attractors; bifurcation theory; introduction to chaotic systems. Further topics as chosen by the instructor. Applications drawn from physics, biology, and engineering. Prerequisites: MATH 3351 or APMA 3080 and MATH 3310 or MATH 4310.
Includes Taylor's theorem, solution of nonlinear equations, interpolation and approximation by polynomials, numerical quadrature. May also cover numerical solutions of ordinary differential equations, Fourier series, or least-square approximation. Prerequisite: MATH 3250 and computer proficiency.
This course provides a framework for the completion of a Distinguished Major Thesis, a treatise containing an exposition of a chosen mathematical topic. A faculty advisor guides a student through the beginning phases of the process of research and writing. Prerequisite: Acceptance into the Distinguished Major Program.
Reading and study programs in areas of interest to individual students. For third- and fourth-years interested in topics not covered in regular courses. Students must obtain a faculty advisor to approve and direct the program.
Development of mathematical models and their solutions, including linear programming, the simplex algorithm, dual programming, parametric programming, integer programming, transportation models, assignment models, and network analysis. Prerequisites: MATH 1320, 3351 and a proof-based course (3000, 3310 or 3354).
Studies the fundamental theorems of analytic function theory.
This is an interdisciplinary course that builds rigorous mathematical theory of fluid flows and provides applications to physics and engineering. Topics include Eulerian and Lagrangian formulation, conservation laws, special solutions, Helmholtz decomposition, and theory of turbulence.
