The Department of Mathematics at the Courant Institute offers training in
mathematics and applications of mathematics in the broadest sense. The
department has leading research groups in many areas, including partial
differential equations, probability and stochastic processes, geometric
analysis, metric geometry, scientific computation, mathematical biology, and
fluid dynamics. A special feature of the Institute is its highly
interdisciplinary character — with courses, seminars, and active research
collaborations in areas such as materials science, visual neural science,
atmosphere/ocean science, cardiac fluid dynamics, plasma physics, financial
mathematics, and mathematical genomics. Another special feature is the central
role of analysis, which provides a natural bridge between pure and applied
mathematics.
