The Division of Applied Mathematics

The mission of the Division of Applied Mathematics rests on research, education, and scholarship. We focus our research and teaching on a wide range of areas from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. In particular, we explore the connections between mathematics and its applications in biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, neuroscience, physics and other disciplines at the research and educational levels. Our educational efforts are realized primarily through our graduate PhD program and our four undergraduate concentrations. 


A special event entitled, "Theory, Algorithms and Applications of Dissipative Particle Dynamics," will take place September 21 - 23, 2015 at Shanghai University.  The workshop focuses on mesoscopic science, a science which bridges the gap between microscopic and macroscopic worlds. Dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) is a coarse-grained method designed for mesoscopic simulations. It has become one of the most widely used methods for mesoscopic modeling due to its simplicity together with high computational efficiency, and flexibility in modeling thermodynamic and kinetic properties.  In this workshop, the professors and experts, who have made significant contributions to the theory, algorithms and applications of DPD, are invited to give featured talks. 


Effective Mentoring:  The Graduate School highlights how the role of a mentor can make all the difference in the life of a graduate student.
