Memorial’s Department of Mathematics and Statistics is one of the institution’s youngest – half our faculty have been hired since 2005 – and most recognized – 20% of us hold the university's highest rank, University Research Professor. Although the Department of Mathematics and Statistics has offered graduate degrees for many years, the past decade has seen an explosion of interest in these programs, adding invaluable new voices to the Department's community of researchers.
Among the research areas studied by our faculty and graduate students are the following: Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computation, Analysis, Combinatorics, Topology, Applied Statistics, Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems, Mathematical Models and Modeling / Numerical Optimization, Algebra, Mathematical Physics, Mathematical Statistics, and Fluid Mechanics.
Graduate applicants interested in research-based programs are strongly encouraged to find a faculty supervisor at the time of application. Visit the Department of Mathematics and Statistics website for areas for a list of faculty members, their research interests, and contact information. You may also use the Yaffle search engine to find a supervisor you may wish to work with.
