Applied Mathematics

Applied Mathematics.

The applied math group has particular strengths in nonlinear waves, network science and scientific computing, as well as breadth in a number of areas such as dynamical systems, mathematical finance and materials science / continuum mechanics. A number of our faculty participate in cross-disciplinary initiatives like the Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.

In addition to tenured and tenure-track faculty, the applied math group currently has three Visiting Assistant Professors, and typically 20 to 25 PhD students, a few MA students, and about 5 MS students. The applied math group has a weekly seminar series featuring internal and external speakers and occasionally hosts small conferences.

  • Professor Sarah Muldoon delivers session on analyzing neuroimaging data across scales
    Statisticians from across upstate New York will descend on UB May 2-4 for UP-STAT 2022, the 10th joint conference of the Upstate Chapters of the American Statistical Association. Sarah Muldoon, associate professor in the Department of Mathematics, UB College of Arts and Sciences, will deliver a special invited session on modeling and analyzing neuroimaging data across scales. Visit the conference website.  Read the story by David J. Hill.
  • Professor Naoki Masuda wins JSPS Prize
    The University at Buffalo Department of Mathematics is pleased to announce that Dr. Naoki Masuda, Associate Professor, is the winner of the JSPS (Japan Society for Promotion of Science) Prize 2020. The national award recognizes his work, “Pioneering Research on Theory and Data-Analysis Methods for Temporal Networks”. Dr. Masuda attended the JSPS Awards Ceremony in February, 2020, accompanied by his daughter, Ami Masuda. The JSPS 2020 Award included full funding of their travel to Japan. While there, Dr. Masuda and Ami participated in an exclusive audience with the Japanese Royal Family.
  • Advances in describing waves

    Work by UB mathematician Gino Biondini builds on centuries of research devoted to using math to describe the physical world.  


Our faculty have access to UB's Center for Computational Research (CCR) for visualization hardware and cutting-edge supercomputering capabilities.
