The Department of Mathematics at the Courant Institute offers balanced training in
mathematics and applications of mathematics in the broadest sense. The Department occupies a
leading position in analysis and applied mathematics, including partial differential
equations, differential geometry, dynamical systems, probability and stochastic processes,
scientific computation, mathematical physics, 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 financial mathematics, materials science,
visual neural science, atmosphere/ocean science, cardiac fluid dynamics, plasma physics, and
mathematical genomics. Another special feature is the central role of analysis, which
provides a natural bridge between pure and applied mathematics.
