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.  In recent years, our topics courses have included

  • Fourier Analysis and Partial Differential Equations (Spring 2014)
  • Optimization (Fall 2013, Spring 2012)
  • Numerical Analysis (Spring 2013)
  • Groups and Representations (Spring 2013)
  • Algebraic Geometry (Fall 2012)
  • Introduction to Cryptography (Fall 2011)
  • Knot Theory (Spring 2011)
  • Algebraic Number Theory (Fall 2010)
  • Differential Geometry (Fall 2009)
