Mathematical Biology

Problems from the life sciences and the mathematical methods for solving them are presented. The underlying biological and mathematical principles and the interrelationships are emphasized.

Linear Programming

A study of the linear programming problem, including the simplex method, duality, and sensitivity analysis with applications to matrix games, integer programming and networks.

Introduction to Algebraic Topology

Introduction to algebraic methods in topology. Includes homotopy, the fundamental group, covering spaces, simplicial complexes. Applications to fixed point theory and group theory.

Introduction to Operator Theory

Theory of linear operators on Hilbert space; spectral theory of bounded and unbounded operators; applications

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.

Advanced Graph Theory

Selection of topics vary with each offering.
