WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS
We are one of the larger departments on campus, with 37 full-time faculty, 19 postdoctoral fellows, 85 graduate students and 8 staff members. The Department has strong research groups in several areas of mathematics and statistics and it offers a growing number of programmes of study at the undergraduate and graduate level. For example, we recently introduced an undergraduate programme in Actuarial and Financial Mathematics, and the field of financial mathematics has also been added to our MSc and PhD mathematics programmes.
Research seminars in Algebra, Analysis, Applied Math, Finance, Geometry and Topology, Mathematical Logic and Statistics and the weekly Colloquium attract some of the world's most prominent mathematicians. Each year the department invites a prestigious guest lecturer to deliver a series of talks, the Britton Lectures (endowed by a gift of Ronald and Helen Britton.) The annual Evelyn Nelson Memorial Lecture commemorates our late collegue, and features talks in the foundations of mathematics. For more information about the department click here.
Congratulations to Walter Craig, who has been elected Fellow of the American Mathematical Society. The distinction of AMS Fellow is in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and application of mathematicsRead more: Department News
