Math 733 RUME 3: Advanced Learning Theories

Credit Hours: 
3
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
This is one of four graduate courses covering research in undergraduate mathematics education that form the basis of a specialization area in our Ph.D. program.

MATH 593G. SPTP: Applied Dynamics/Chaos.

Credit Hours: 
3
Syllabus: 
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
This is a special topics class in dynamical systems, an important and evolving area within applied mathematics. The pre-requisite is an undergraduate course in differential equations. Topics include stability, bifurcations, catastrophe theory, chaos, the butterfly effect, strange attractors, fractals. There are diverse applications to biology, physics, chemistry and engineering. The course is cross-listed with Math 493H.

MATH 747. Advanced Topics in Modern Algebra

Credit Hours: 
3
Course coordinator: 
Professor Wojciechowski
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
Provides, in essence, a “third semester” of modern algebra after Math 541-641. This course can be used with Math 641 to make a minor area in algebra for Ph.D. students. It is offered every one or two years and sometimes continues in the spring. The course can be repeated for credit, as the topics will change from year to year. Please contact the instructor for further information on the topics to be covered this year.

MATH 793A SPTP: Math Systems Biology

Credit Hours: 
3
Syllabus: 
Semester Offered: 
Comments From Graduate Director: 
This course studies dynamical systems that arise in the modeling of biological systems and how these systems can result in fundamental biological phenomena, including stable equilibria that arise in complex systems, and bistable states. We expect to offer a three semester sequence in systems biology, with the second course emphasizing simulation of complex biological systems and the third semester devoted to the role of random effects.
