Applied Mathematics

The Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University is one of the most prominent departments at Brown, and is also one of the oldest and strongest of its type in the country. The Division of Applied Mathematics is a world renowned center of research activity in a wide spectrum of traditional and modern mathematics. It explores the connections between mathematics and its applications at both the research and educational levels. The principal areas of research activities are ordinary, functional, and partial differential equations: stochastic control theory; applied probability, statistics and stochastic systems theory; neuroscience and computational molecular biology; numerical analysis and scientific computation; and the mechanics of solids, materials science and fluids. The effort in virtually all research ranges from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. The Division emphasizes applied mathematics as a unifying theme. To facilitate cooperation among faculty and students, some research programs are partly organized around interdepartmental research centers. These centers facilitate funding and cooperative research in order to maintain the highest level of research and education in the Division. It is this breadth and the discovery from mutual collaboration which marks the great strength and uniqueness of the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown.
