Closure of Applied Mathematics

Overhead view of students sitting at desk

The Applied Mathematics Department is closed as of 1 July 2021.

Programs and Faculty specializing in applied mathematics (with the exception of engineering math) have moved to the Department of Mathematics. Programs and Faculty specializing in theoretical physics and scientific computing have moved to the Department of Physics & Astronomy. Engineering Math inquiries should be directed toward the Department of Physics & Astronomy.

We are offering the following substitutions to students who begin their 3rd or 4yr of study in the Applied Math Major Module [Printable PDF Description Here]

Instead of:

  • 0.5 Courses from AM 4613A/B, 4617A/B
  • 0.5 Courses from AM 4815A/B, AM 4817A/B

We will substitute:

  • 1.0 Courses from AM 3615A (Mathematical Biology), Phys 3151A (formerly AM 3151A, Classical Mechanics), Math 3152 A (Combinatorial Math), Math 3157 B (Game Theory), AM 4615 A (Computer Algebra), Math 4958 B (Special Topics in Applied Math, Evolutionary Dynamics, requires AM 3815A and SS 2857A), Phys 3926F (Computer Simulations in Physics, 2nd year Phys pre-reqs likely to be waived by the instructor; only for students who have *not* taken AM 3911F/G). 

Please note that you cannot already be counting a substituted course as part of other requirements of your module. It is up to you to verify this. 

Other substitutions may be possible; courses listed above have been chosen because AM students often have the associated pre-requisites.
