Welcome to Applied Mathematics

The Department of Applied Mathematics has 16 tenure and tenure track faculty, 5 emeriti faculty, 1 senior lecturer and 2 lecturers. We offer both the M.S. and PhD in Applied Mathematics.

Mission Statement

The NPS Applied Mathematics Department is committed to excellence. Our purpose is to provide an exceptional mathematical education focused on the unique needs of our students, to produce relevant research for our sponsors, and to provide quality service to the community. We further are committed to maintenance of a well-designed curriculum and a supportive environment for our students.

Vision Statement

We will provide a solid mathematical foundation for our students as they make the transition into graduate curricula. We will provide high-quality instruction in all our courses, giving emphasis to relevant and modern mathematical techniques in our advanced courses. We will encourage our students to develop and utilize skills in analysis, reasoning, creativity, and exposition as they acquire knowledge of mathematics and its applications.

We will maintain active research programs, making a special effort to respond to the needs of the NPS, DoN and DoD communities. By adhering to the most stringent standards of scholarship, we will ensure that NPS continues to hold the respect of the community of scholars worldwide.

We will continue to serve the NPS community by keeping active in the governance of the School. We will serve our client curricula by ensuring, to the best of our ability, that our service courses meet their needs. We will serve our profession, not only through scholarship but also by our involvement in professional organizations and by our editorial and administrative contributions to the growing body of mathematical knowledge.
