Learn at a mathematical powerhouse. We offer strong and flexible programs at all degree levels.

Students majoring in mathematics take courses in the logical foundations of mathematics, the calculus sequence, matrix algebra, and discrete mathematics. Majors choose from a concentration of applied, traditional, or actuarial mathematics. Both the BA and the BS in mathematics will allow entry to advanced studies or career opportunities as diverse as the fields to which mathematics is applied. The metro region of Washington, D.C. is a particularly fertile area for related job opportunities, including consulting, teaching, and government.

Mason offers a vibrant graduate mathematics program that awards MS and PhD degrees. Students can specialize in a diverse selection of areas in pure, applied and computational mathematics.

Students use well-developed mathematical skills across multiple fields.

Topology, Algebraic Geometry, and Dynamics Seminar (TADS): Quantum Field Theory and Derived Differential Geometry (Part I)

Sep 30, 2022/1:30 - 2:30 PM

Speaker: David Carchedi, GMU Title: Quantum Field Theory and Derived Differential Geometry (Part I) Abstract: In a quantum theory, physicists express expectation values of observable properties formally as an integral over an infinite dimensional space of fields. In actuality, these values are computed as a sum of contributions of certain

Mathematics Colloquium: The Secret Algebraic Lives of Graphs

Sep 30, 2022/3:30 - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Keri Sather-Wagstaff, Clemson University and NSF Title: The Secret Algebraic Lives of Graphs Abstract: This will be a talk about graphs, i.e., finite simple graphs (networks with finitely many nodes and no loops or multi-edges). I will discuss how one can use algebra to understand certain aspects of these

Quantum Computing Seminar: Candidate for a passively-protected quantum memory in two dimensions

Oct 3, 2022/12:30 - 1:30 PM

Speaker: Alexey Gorshkov, NIST Title: Candidate for a passively-protected quantum memory in two dimensions Abstract: An interesting problem in the field of quantum error correction involves finding a physical system that hosts a "passively-protected quantum memory,'' defined as an encoded qubit coupled to an environment that naturally wants to correct
