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.
The National Science Foundation has awarded the largest grant in university history to renew ICERM, Brown's math institute. ICERM's unique mission is to bring about new technologies in the realm of computation and experimentaton into pure and applied mathematics. The institute brings together renowned mathematicians and researchers, as well as students, from around the world. (Read more)
