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.

Analysis and Probability Seminar Mar. 6, 2015

Date posted: March 4th, 2015

Friday, March 6, 2015 (12:45 p.m. in Yost 306)
Title: Matrix Inequalities and Applications II
Speaker: Ben Li (Graduate Student, Case Western Reserve University MAMS Department)
Abstract: We continue to present classical matrix inequalities. In this talk we show the Fuchs-van de Graaf inequalities, which relatetwo “distances” measuring the closeness of twoquantumstates (or of two probability densities): fidelity and the 1-norm. Next, combining with Rotfeld’s inequality, we sketch some of their applications to the geometry of Schatten spaces and to quantum information theory. […Read more]

Title: Using Mathematical Modeling to Understand Kinetics of Lymphocyte Migration in the Whole Organism
Speaker: Vitaly V. Ganusov (Assistant Professor, University of Tennessee)
Abstract: The kinetics of recirculation of naive lymphocytes in the body has important implications for the speed at which local infections are detected and controlled by immune responses. While molecules involved in migration of lymphocytes to secondary lymphoid tissues such as spleen and lymph nodes have been identified, […Read more]
