  • APPM 1360 - Calculus 2 for Engineers
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Continuation of APPM 1350. Focuses on applications of the definite integral, methods of integration, improper integrals, Taylor's theorem, and infinite series. Degree credit not granted for this course and MATH 2300.
  • APPM 3170 - Discrete Applied Mathematics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Introduces students to ideas and techniques from discrete mathematics that are widely used in science and engineering. Mathematical definitions and proofs are emphasized. Topics include formal logic notation, proof methods; set theory, relations; induction, well-ordering; algorithms, growth of functions and complexity; integer congruences; basic and advanced counting techniques, recurrences and elementary graph theory. Other selected topics may also be covered.
  • APPM 4530 - Stochastic Analysis for Finance
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Studies mathematical theories and techniques for modeling financial markets. Specific topics include the binomial model, risk neutral pricing, stochastic calculus, connection to partial differential equations and stochastic control theory. Same as APPM 5530, STAT 4230 and STAT 5230.
