Applied and Computational Mathematics

Applied and Computational Mathematics is the newly redesigned Applied Mathematics track in the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. The student with an interest in mathematics and computer science and in some of the overlapping disciplines of biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics is urged to major in Applied and Computational Mathematics. To qualify for this track, a student must satisfactorily complete with a grade of C or better each of the following courses in this suggested four-year schedule:

First Year
50: 640: 121 Unified Calculus I (4)
50: 640: 122 Unified Calculus II (4)
50: 750: 131, 50: 750: 133 Elements of Physics I, Elements of Physics Lab I (4)
50: 750: 132, 50: 750: 134 Elements of Physics II, Elements of Physics Lab II (4)

Sophomore Year
50: 640: 221 Unified Calculus III (4)
50: 640: 250 Linear Algebra (3)
50: 640: 237 Discrete Mathematics (3)
50: 198: 111-112 Introduction to Computer Science, Software Lab I (4)

Junior Year
50: 640: 314 Elementary Differential Equations (3)
50: 198: 381 Introduction to Numerical Methods (3)
50: 198: 113-114 Programming with Data Structures, Software Lab II (4)
50: 198: 271 Design and Analysis of Algorithms (3)

Senior Year
50: 640: 358 Advanced Discrete Mathematics (3)
50: 640: 463 Partial Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems I (3)
50: 198: 481 Advanced Numerical Methods (3)
Applied and Computational Mathematics Elective (3)

The preceding list contains 55 credits. It indicates the chronological sequence in which the student should complete the courses.

Applied and Computational Mathematics Electives:
50: 640: 427 Advanced Differential Equations (3)
50: 640: 497 Visualizing Mathematics by Computer (3)
50: 640: 498 Computational Mathematics (3)
50: 640: 499 Mathematics on the Web (3)
