Applied and Computational Mathematics at Florida State University

The Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM) Graduate Program provides students with extensive research and educational experiences in modeling, analysis, algorithms, computation and simulation for problems arising throughout mathematics, science, and engineering. The ACM program offers studies leading to both the Master's (MA/MS) and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees. The program is designed to prepare students for mathematics careers in academia, research laboratories, and industry.

The faculty associated with the ACM Program includes a Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor and the Sir James Lighthill Distinguished Professor. The faculty maintains a strong research program on a wide range of applications, algorithms and computational techniques with a significant amount of multidisciplinary research including collaborations with faculty in other FSU departments as well as universities around the world. Areas of interest include the theoretical and computational aspects of:

  • aeroacoustics
  • applied partial differential equations
  • fluid and geophysical dynamics
  • rheology of complex fluids
  • Bose-Einstein condensation
  • flow control
  • nanomaterials and nanotechnology
  • uncertainty analysis and quantification
  • digital signal and image processing
  • shape analysis
  • stochastic processes and differential equations
  • dynamical systems
  • optimization
  • differential/integral equations
  • mathematical modeling
  • high-performance and large-scale computing
  • large-scale data analysis
