### Programs in Applied Mathematics

Programs leading to the Master and Doctor of Philosophy degrees
in Applied Mathematics are offered by the
faculty of Applied Mathematics and
other faculty from throughout the School of Engineering and Applied Science. The Master of Science degree requires a thesis, while the Master of Applied Mathematics degree
requires a project.
General areas of research are in continuum
mechanics, and numerical analysis/scientific computing. Other
areas include control theory for ordinary and partial differential
equations, modern mathematics of differential equations, and optimization
theory needed in the study of problems relevant to engineering
and science.

A network of SUN workstations is available to all graduate
students. Information, Technology and Communication
operates nine IBM RS/6000 Model 540 computers. Supercomputers
are available at certain government laboratories for use on sponsored
research projects.

A suitable background for admission to the graduate program is
a Bachelor's degree in mathematics, engineering, physical science,
or other disciplines with a strong mathematical emphasis. Applicants
should have at least a B average in their undergraduate work and
should take the
Graduate Record Examination.

A one-course minor for the master's degree
and a two-course minor for the Ph.D. is required. Suitable minor areas are
computer science, applied mechanics, or other engineering or scientific
disciplines.
