A student in the applied mathematics track must demonstrate knowledge of scientific computing, mathematical modeling, and differential equations. This includes taking qualifying examinations in the areas of computational mathematics and mathematical modeling, and taking certain courses in these three areas, as specified below.
A doctoral student in the applied mathematics track must take written examinations in numerical analysis and in mathematical modeling, as well as an oral examination in his or her chosen area of specialization. Subjects include but are not restricted to fluid mechanics, statistical mechanics, epidemiology, neuroscience, and more traditional fields of mathematics.
