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. This workshop will focus on the exciting field of mesoscopic science, a science which bridges the microscopic and the macroscopic worlds. What has become one of the most widely used methods for mesoscopic modeling is dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) which is a course-grained system for mesoscopic simulations. Professors and experts who have made significant contributions to this field are invited to give featured talks.
The Division of Applied Mathematics is currently inviting applicants for two positions: An Assistant Professorship in numerical analysis and scientific computing as well as aPrager Assistant Professorship. Both have a start date of July 1, 2016.
