The Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Case Western Reserve University is an active center for mathematical research. Faculty members conduct research in algebra, analysis, applied mathematics, convexity, dynamical systems, geometry, imaging, inverse problems, life sciences applications, mathematical biology, modeling, numerical analysis, probability, scientific computing, stochastic systems and other areas.
The department offers a variety of programs leading to both undergraduate and graduate degrees in traditional and applied mathematics, and statistics. Undergraduate degrees are Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in mathematics, Bachelor of Science in applied mathematics, and Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in statistics. Graduate degrees are Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. The Integrated BS/MS program allows a student to earn a Bachelor of Science in either mathematics or applied mathematics and a master’s degree from the mathematics department or another department in five years. The department, in cooperation with the college’s teacher licensure program and John Carroll University, offers a program for individuals interested in pre-college teaching. Together with the Department of Physics, it offers a specialized joint Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Physics.

Title: Enhancing resolution in inverse problems based on a reduced model (Part 4)
Speaker: Erkki Somersalo (Professor and Interim Chair, Case Western Reserve University)
Abstract: When solving inverse problems under demanding conditions, e.g., when the computational time is an issue, an attractive option is to replace a costly high-fidelity forward model by a reduced model that requires less computing resources. …Read more.

Title: Occupation times of discrete-time fractional Brownian motion
Speaker: Manfred Denker (Professor, Mathematics Department, Penn State University)
Abstract: For discrete-time fractional Brownian motion with Hurst parameter greater than 1/4 I will prove a conditional local limit theorem and show how this theorem together with infinite ergodic theory can be used to investigate the occupation times of the process. …Read more.
