The Division of Applied Mathematics is devoted to research, education and scholarship. Our faculty engages in research in a range of areas from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. By its nature, our work is and always has been inter– and multidisciplinary. Among the research areas represented in the division are dynamical systems and partial differential equations, control theory, probability and stochastic processes, numerical analysis and scientific computing, fluid mechanics, computational biology, statistics, and pattern theory. Our graduate program in applied mathematics includes around 50 Ph.D. students, with many of them working on interdisciplinary projects. Joint research projects exist with faculty in various biology and life sciences departments and the departments of Chemistry, Computer Science, Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences, Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics and Neuroscience, as well as with faculty in the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
