Abstract Algebra II

Continuation of Abstract Algebra I, with emphasis on Galois theory, modules, polynomial fields, and the theory of linear associative algebra.

Abstract Algebra I

This course develops in the theme of "Arithmetic congruence, and abstract algebraic structures." There will be a very strong emphasis on theory and proofs.

Senior Project II

The second of a two course sequence of faculty-directed independent research culminating in the writing of a senior thesis and its presentation.

Senior Project I

The first of a two course sequence of faculty-directed independent research culminating in the writing of a senior thesis and its presentation.

Combinatorial Analysis

Combinatorial problem-solving techniques including the use of generating functions, recurrence relations, Polya theory, combinatorial designs, Ramsey theory, matroids, and asymptotic analysis.

Introduction to Probability and Statistics

This course is a problem oriented introduction to the basic concepts of probability and statistics, providing a foundation for applications and further study.

Applied Combinatorics

Elementary combinatorial techniques used in discrete problem solving: counting methods, solving linear recurrences, graph and network models, related algorithms, and combinatorial designs.

Calculus of Variations

Minimization of functionals, Euler Lagrange equations, sufficient conditions for a minimum, geodesic, isoperimetric and time of transit problems, variational principles of mechanics, applications to control theory.

Stochastic Processes and Stochastic Calculus II

An introduction to the Ito stochastic calculus and stochastic differential equations through a development of continuous-time martingales and Markov processes. (2nd of two courses in sequence)

Probabilistic Methods in Combinatorics

Applications of probabilistic techniques in discrete mathematics, including classical ideas using expectation and variance as well as modern tools, such as martingale and correlation inequalities.
