We offer a variety of special topics courses.

In addition to those courses that are taught on a recurring basis, our curriculum each year also includes classes which are taught only occasionally.  This allows faculty the flexibility to present a broad cross-section of mathematical content to our students.  Often (but not always) these courses are taught either as Math 249 or Math 349.  One special topics class is offered each semester.  In recent years, topics courses have included

  • Algebraic coding theory
  • Fourier Analysis and Partial Differential Equations
  • Cryptography
  • Stochastic Processes
  • Optimization
  • Numerical Analysis
  • Group Actions
  • Algebraic Geometry
  • Knot Theory
  • Algebraic Number Theory
  • Differential Geometry
  • Advanced Linear Algebra
