Mathematics and Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers two master's degrees, one in Mathematics and the other in Statistics, and two doctoral degrees, one in Mathematics and one in Statistics. Areas of study for Mathematics include: algebra, algebraic geometry, real and complex analysis, differential geometry, and topology. The areas of study for Statistics are: mathematical statistics, survival analysis, modeling, statistical computing for massive data, Bayesian regulation, bioinformatics, longitudinal and functional data analysis, statistical computation, asymptotic theory, objective Bayes, bootstrap, post-selection inference, and application of statistics to medicine. Because it is difficult to make up coherent programs for students entering in the middle of the year, students are ordinarily admitted only in the fall.
