About the Mathematics Department

Students use the power of mathematics—and its role as a fundamental mode of human thought—to explore and explain the world. They can use math to analyze today's problems, such as the spread of disease or market volatility. And they can look to the future for solutions in quantum mechanics and quantum computing.
