concentrations in Applied Mathematics require certain basic courses to be taken, but beyond this there is a great deal of flexibility as to which areas of application are pursued. Students are encouraged to take courses in applied mathematics, mathematics and one or more of the application areas in the natural sciences, social sciences or engineering. Whichever areas are chosen should be studied in some depth. Applied Mathematics Program A.B. degree Prerequisite: MATH 0090, 0100 or their equivalent. Program: Ten additional semester courses approved by the Division of Applied Mathematics. These classes must include: MATH 0180 and 0520. APMA 0350 and 0360. One course on programming from the following list: APMA 0090, 0160, CSCI 0040, 0150, or 0170. APMA 0330, 0340 will sometimes be accepted as substitutes for APMA 0350, 0360. Of the unspecified courses four should be chosen from the 1000-level courses taught by the Division of Applied Mathematics. Substitution of alternate courses for the specific requirements is subject to approval of the division. Concentrators are urged to consider MATH 0540 as an alternative to MATH 0520 and to complete their introductory programming course before the end of their sophomore year. Applied Mathematics Program Sc.B. degree Eighteen approved semester courses in mathematics, applied mathematics, engineering, the natural or social sciences. These classes must include: MATH 0090, 0100, 0180, and 0520. APMA 0350 and 0360. A senior seminar: APMA 1930 or 1940 or an approved equivalent. One course on programming from the following list: APMA 0090, 0160, CSCI 0040, 0150, or 0170. APMA 0330, 0340 will sometimes be accepted as substitutes for APMA 0350, 0360. Of the unspecified courses six should be chosen from the 1000-level or higher level courses taught by the Division of Applied Mathematics. Substitution of alternate courses for the specific

Concentrators are urged to consider MATH 0540 as an alternative to MATH 0520 and to complete their introductory programming course before the end of their sophomore year. Applied Mathematics Biology Sc.B. degree The Applied Math Biology concentration recognizes that mathematics is essential to address many modern biological problems in the post genomic era. Specifically, high throughput technologies have rendered vast new biological data sets that require novel analytical skills for the most basic anal yses. These technologies are spawning a new “data - driven” paradigm in the biological sciences and the fields of bioinformatics and systems biology. The foundations of these new fields are inherently mathematical with a focus on probability, statistical inference, and systems dynamics. These mathematical methods apply very broadly in many biological fields including some like population growth, spread of disease, that predate the genomics revolution. Nevertheless, the application of these methods in areas of biology from molecular genetics to evolutionary biology has grown very rapidly in with the availability of vast amounts of genomic sequence data.
