The following courses are recommended for satisfying the 15.0 unit option requirements of a MATH minor:
MATH 211/6.0 Algebraic Methods MATH 221/3.0 Vector Calculus MATH 231/3.0 Differential Equations MATH 272/3.0 Applications of Numerical Methods STAT 268/3.0 Statistics and Probability I STAT 269/3.0 Statistics and Probability II
The following courses in MATH may be used in lieu of CISC options in most Computing plans:
MATH 272/3.0 Applications of Numerical Methods MATH 337/3.0 Introduction to Operations Research Models MATH 401/3.0 Graph Theory MATH 402/3.0 Combinatorics: Enumeration and Designs MATH 434/3.0 Linear and Nonlinear Optimizations MATH 474/3.0 Information Theory
Here are some additional courses offered by Mathematics and Statistics which may be of interest to Computing students:
MATH 339/3.0 Evolutionary Game Theory MATH 406/3.0 Introduction to Coding Theory MATH 413/3.0 Computational Commutative Algebra MATH 414/3.0 Introduction to Galois Theory MATH 418/3.0 Number Theory and Cryptology MATH 477/3.0 Source Coding and Quantization STAT 361/3.0 Applied Methods in Statistics I STAT 462/3.0 Computational Data Analysis STAT 463/3.0 Fundamentals of Statistical Inference STAT 464/3.0 Discrete Time Series Analysis STAT 471/3.0 Design and Analysis of Experiments STAT 486/3.0 Survival Analysis BIOM 300/3.0 Modeling Techniques in BiologyThe Undergraduate Chair in the School of Computing will normally allow any of these courses to be used in lieu of CISC options, or, in some cases, core requirements.
The School of Computing and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics offer a specialization program in Computing and Mathematics. It is primarily intended for students aiming at graduate work in the theory of Computing or in an applied area of Computing requiring significant mathematical expertise, such as communications, optimization, security, or biomedical computing. The plan will give such students enough Computing to satisfy graduate-admission requirements (in Computer Science) and a good foundation in Mathematics relevant to research in Computing.
