Mathematics & Statistics


The mathematics faculty do research and write papers on algebra, combinatorics, dynamical systems, geometric knot theory, graph theory, logic, mathematical crystallography, mathematical biology, number theory, singularity theory, statistics and quantum logic. Within those fields, the research goes from the very abstract to the quite applied. Faculty also write textbooks, mount exhibits and build sculptures. There are a number of opportunities for students to participate in research projects for undergraduates and work as a grader or teaching assistant.
