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. 


George Em Karniadakis, Charles Pitts Robinson and John Palmer Barstow Professor of Applied Mathematics at Brown University has been chosen as this year's recipient of the Ralph E. Kleinman Prize.  Professor Karniadakis has merited this year's award for his “many outstanding contributions to Applied Mathematics in a broad range of areas, including computational fluid dynamics, spectral methods and stochastic modeling." Professor Karniadakis is well known for his development of algorithms and mathematical simulations for biological systems, especially relating to blood flow in the brain and heart.   Read more.
