Applied Mathematics


Supports research in any area of mathematics except probability or statistics. Research is expected to be motivated by or have an effect on problems arising in science and engineering, although intrinsic mathematical merit is the most important factor. Areas of interest include partial differential equations that model natural phenomena or that arise from problems in science and engineering, continuum mechanics, reaction-diffusion and wave propagation, dynamical systems, asymptotic methods, numerical analysis, variational methods, control theory, optimization theory, inverse problems, mathematics of biological or geological sciences, and mathematical physics.
