The Center for Applied Mathematics and Computation involves faculty members and graduate students in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Massachusetts who are interested in research and instruction in applied mathematics and scientific computation. The Center supports a research seminar series in Applied Analysis and Computation Seminar. The M.S. Program in Applied Mathematics, a two-year professional degree program for students who seek industrial employment, is also coordinated by the Center.
The research interests of the Applied Mathematics faculty span diverse fields of modern applied mathematics, scientific computing and applied analysis and probability. Members of the faculty are also directly involved in applications, among others in biology, ecology, fluid dynamics, geosciences, materials science, optics and soft-condensed matter physics.
Some of the principal research directions of applied mathematics pursued at UMass are: predictive modeling and data science, numerical analysis and scientific computing, including methods for deterministic and stochastic PDE, as well as molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo methods; stochastic modelling, probability theory, stochastic processes and equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics; Nonlinear PDE, harmonic analysis, dynamical systems, ergodic theory and mathematical physics, mathematical biology and ecology.
