The Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Case Western Reserve University is an active center for mathematical and statistical research. Faculty members conduct research in algebra, analysis, applied mathematics, asymptotic statistics, bayesian statistics, convexity, dynamical systems, geometry, imaging, inverse problems, life sciences applications, mathematical biology, modeling, numerical analysis, probability, scientific computing, spatial statistics, stochastic systems and other areas.

The department offers a variety of programs leading to both undergraduate and graduate degrees in traditional and applied mathematics and statistics. Undergraduate degrees are Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in mathematics, Bachelor of Science in applied mathematics, and Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in statistics. Together with the Department of Physics, it offers a specialized joint Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Physics. Graduate degrees are Master of Science in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, or Statistics, and Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics. The Integrated BS/MS program allows a student to earn a Bachelor of Science in either Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, or Statistics and a Master’s degree from the department or another department in five years. The department, in cooperation with the college’s teacher licensure program and John Carroll University, offers a program for individuals interested in pre-college teaching.

Student Spotlight: Class of ’18 alumnus Profiled in ArtSci Magazine

MAMS Alumnus, Nicholas Barendregt was recently featured in the Case Western Reserve ArtSci Magazine, honoring his senior capstone project during the 2017-18 academic year. Check out the article here. Nicholas is currently a graduate student and research assistant in the Applied Mathematics Department at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Professor David Gurarie and MAMS Alumna, Dr. Nara Yoon Featured in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS)

Our very own, Professor David Gurarie and MAMS alumna Dr. Nara Yoon, were featured in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS).  Established in 1914, PNAS publishes cutting-edge research, science news, commentaries, perspectives, colloquium papers, reviews, and actions of the National Academy of Sciences.  Drs. Yoon and Gurarie’s research, Impact and Cost-Effectiveness of Snail Control to Achieve Disease Control Targets for Schistosomiasis, modeled transmission of schistosomiasis and cost-effectiveness of various strategies with data from low- and high-prevalence rural Kenyan communities.

Dr. Peter Thomas Appointed Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Biological Cybernetics Springer Journal

Professor Peter Thomas was appointed co-Editor-in-Chief of the Springer Journal Biological Cybernetics (effective January 1, 2018).  Biological Cybernetics (originally named Kybernetik) was founded in 1961 as “A Journal Dealing with the Transmission and Processing of Information as well as with Control Processes in both Animals and Automata.” The name took inspiration from the work of visionary mathematician Norbert Wiener, who coined the term “cybernetics” and was among the journal’s founding editors.   The journal continues a tradition of publishing rigorous, quantitative theoretical investigations of biological systems, both in computational neuroscience and other areas of theoretical and systems biology.

Drs. Calvetti and Somersalo Featured on the SIAM Review Front Cover

Our own, Dr. Calvetti and Dr. Somersalo’s article “Bayes Meets Krylov: Statistically Inspired Preconditioners for CGLS” is featured on the cover of SIAM Review’s Volume 60 number 2 issue.  Their method combines the advantages of the Bayesian inference and Krylov subspace methods in a novel technique of solving under-determined linear inverse problems. Check out the abstract here.
