Instruction Mode: Section 002 is (see other Sections below)
Subject: Mathematics (MATH)
Department: LSA Mathematics
See additional student enrollment and course instructor information to guide you in your decision making.


Requirements & Distribution:
Advisory Prerequisites:
MATH 451; and 217, 419, or 420.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May be repeated for a maximum of 6 credit(s).


Background and Goals: This is an advanced topics course intended for students with strong interests in the intersection of mathematics and the sciences, but not necessarily experience with both applied mathematics and the application field. Mathematical concepts, as well as intuitions arising from the field of application will be stressed.

Content: This course will focus on particular topics in emerging areas of applied mathematics for which the application field has been strongly influenced by mathematical ideas. It is intended for students with interests in the mathematical, computational, and/or modeling aspects of interdisciplinary concepts. The applications considered will vary with the instructor and may come from physics, biology, economics, electrical engineering, and other fields. Recent examples have been: Nonlinear Waves, Mathematical Ecology, and Computational Neuroscience. 

Alternatives: none

Subsequent Courses: Other courses in applied mathematics
