Our faculty, postdocs and students conduct research across many areas of study in mathematics and statistics. Here we have loosely organized these into the three traditional categories of Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics.
"Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas."
- Albert Einstein
Faculty interests include:
- Operator Algebras
- Number Theory
"There is no branch of mathematics, however abstract, which may not someday be applied to phenomena of the real world."
- Nikolai Lobachevsky
Faculty interests include
- Applied Mathematics
- Game Theory and Operations Research
"Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future."
- Niels Bohr
Graduate and undergraduate students in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics have many opportunities engage in research. These include working along side a faculty mentor on a small side project, an Honors Thesis, or a Graduate Thesis. Students may also engage in interdisciplinary research through collaborations with faculty outside the department in the College of Science, the College of Engineering, the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology & Natural Resources (CABNR), or the School of Medicine.
