## Computing and Mathematics

Students interested in combining Computing and Mathematics
can register for a combined Major in Computing
(

COMP-M-BCH) and Science Minor
in Mathematics
(

MATH-Z). It is relatively easy for a Computing Major to satisfy the
requirements of a Minor in Mathematics because Arts and Science regulations
allow 12.0 units of Discrete Math (e.g., CISC-102/3.0), Calculus (e.g., MATH-121/6.0) and Linear Algebra (e.g., MATH-112/3.0) credits to be
counted in

*both* plans.

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 Biology

The 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.
