Applied and Computational Mathematics at Florida State University

ACM Ph.D. students may be advised by any faculty member of the Department of Mathematics. It is also possible to have an advisor that is a facutly member in another department. In this case, it is required to have a faculty member of the Department of Mathematics as a co-advisor to chair the examination committees. This co-advisor may be an active participant in the student's dissertation research or may simply be an administrative monitor. Contact the ACM Director for details.

Faculty members with research activity that may be of interest to ACM Ph.D. students are listed below. Faculty members mainly responsible for the design and teaching of the ACM curriculum are marked with .
