Mathematicians Luis Caffarelli and Douglas Arnold To Speak in Baylor Lecture Series in Fall 2019
Aug. 8, 2019
Luis Caffarelli (University of Texas) and Douglas Arnold (University of Minnesota) are the speakers in, respectively, the thirteenth annual *Baylor Lecture Series in Mathematics* and the twelfth annual *Baylor Undergraduate Lecture Series in Mathematics*. Both are internationally recognized for their fundamental research in mathematics.
Professor Caffarelli, the Sid Richardson Foundation Regents Chair in Mathematics at the University of Texas in Austin and a member of the National Academy of Sciences, will visit Baylor University on October 17-18. Professor Arnold, the McKnight Presidential Professor of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota, visits Baylor on December 5-6. Each will give two lectures on campus; their public lectures (October 18 and December 5) are suitable for faculty, students, and the general public.

The Department of Mathematics offers a broadly based curriculum that includes a variety of mathematical areas, both traditional and contemporary. With a strong commitment to quality undergraduate education and research, we seek to develop individuals who can enjoy productive careers in business, government, industry, research and education at all levels.

The department offers research opportunities in various areas to Undergraduate students.

ALEKS is an online, artificially intelligent, assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know.

The Department of Mathematics at Baylor University offers both a Ph.D. Degree and a Master of Science Degree with excellent research opportunities in a range of research areas in pure and applied mathematics. If you are looking for a graduate program in mathematics where class size is conducive to learning and professors are readily available, then the graduate program at Baylor University might be a good match for you.

After accumulating 18 graduate credit hours, graduate students with assistantships usually teach one undergraduate course, such as pre-calculus, per semester. In addition, faculty teaching mentors are utilized to help develop effective teaching pedagogy.

Algebra
A broad area of mathematical research, ranging from purely theoretical to highly applicable.
Analysis
A vast realm of mathematics which encompasses calculus and its extension into higher mathematics.
Differential Equations
Focuses on ordinary and partial differential equations and discrete dynamical systems.
Mathematical Physics
Mathematical physics studies conceptual frameworks which presumably describe physical phenomena.
Numerical Analysis and Computational Mathematics
Numerical analysis is the study of computer methods for solving math problems that arise in engineering and other scientific areas.
Representation Theory
The area of mathematics that studies this amazing symmetry is called Lie theory or representation theory
Topology
Topology is the study of the properties of spaces that are preserved under continuous transformation.
