Probability Theory

This course is a mathematical introduction to probability theory, covering random variables, moments, multivariate distributions, law of large numbers, central limit theorem, and large deviations.

Undergraduate Seminar

Pass/fail basis.

This course provides students with a broad exposure to areas of mathematics research through weekly speakers.

Mathematical Problem Solving

Pass/Fail basis. This course is intended to teach general mathematical problem solving skills, and to prepare students to take the Putnam Examination.

Probability and Statistics with Applications

Introduction to probability, probability distributions, point estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, linear regression and analysis of variance.

A Second Course on Linear Algebra

This course will cover important topics in linear algebra not usually discussed in a first-semester course, featuring a mixture of theory and applications.

Introduction to Discrete Mathematics

Mathematical logic and proof, mathematical induction, counting methods, recurrence relations, algorithms and complexity, graph theory and graph algorithms.

Foundations of Mathematical Proof

An introduction to proofs in advanced mathematics, intended as a transition to upper division courses including MATH 4107, 4150 and 4317.

Vector/Parallel Scientific Computing

Scientific computational algorithms on vector and parallel computers. Speedup, algorithm complexity, interprocesses communication, synchronization, modern algorithms for linear systems, programming techniques, code optimization.

Classical Mathematical Methods in Engineering

Fourier series, Fourier integrals, boundary value problems for partial differential equations, eigenvalue problems

Dynamics and Bifurcations I

A broad introduction to the local and global behavior of nonlinear dynamical systems arising from maps and ordinary differential equations.
