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.
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Professor Emeritus Fred Bisshopp on January 25, 2018. Fred Bisshopp came to Brown in 1959 as an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow. (Read more.)
