Outside the department's rigorous and flexible courses and the variety of student experiences, mathematics students and faculty, often in tandem, produce outstanding research projects that are published in many reputable publications.
Selected students participate in grant-funded research projects, under the guidance of faculty mentors, that provide challenging opportunities to gain practical experience. Summer undergraduate research programs are often interdisciplinary and contribute to research problems in biology, chemistry, engineering, and statistics.
Faculty members conduct research on assorted topics including number theory, combinatorics, difference equations, topology, probability, and statistics. Faculty also engage in interdisciplinary research, often supported by grants from the National Science Foundation.
