Welcome to the Mathematical Sciences Department

Explore Our Mathematical World

Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, space, and change. It is a peculiarly human endeavor that attempts to organize our experience in a quantitative fashion. Mathematics aids and supplements our intuitions about the physical universe and about human behavior.

FAU offers many opportunities on both the undergraduate and graduate levels to study Mathematics. Check out the Course Information and Programs tabs to find out more! In addition, our department hosts several outreach events for students in K-12.

Thank you for a successful campaign! We have reached our goal, and couldn't do it with you! Your help is greatly appreciated! Please visit: https://fauf.fau.edu/springboard/#/project/math-days!

Obituary

On January 1, 2017, our distinguished colleague and dear friend Jorge Viola-Prioli passed away. He joined Florida Atlantic University's Department of Mathematical Sciences in August 2003 and since then played a key role in shaping our classes and programs. Until his last weeks, Jorge served in our department as Senior Instructor and Research Professor, working with his students and supporting his colleagues.

Jorge's research focus was in algebra, but those of us who had the honor to work with him in person also knew him as passionate teacher and insightful mentor. He chaired our undergraduate committee, helped us to shape the Discrete Mathematics and Methods of Calculus courses, implemented a solid assessment for our undergraduate program, and contributed to our department in many other ways.

Jorge was a most valued faculty member at Universidad Simón Bolívar in Venezuela, and as textbook author touched on the educational experience of numerous students. Both at Florida Atlantic University and at Universidad Simón Bolívar, Jorge's classes were famous for their careful and dedicated preparation and delivery. He offered students a wonderful opportunity to learn, to grow, and to pursue their career goals.

Jorge was an outstanding scholar and true gentleman with an impeccable sense for what is right. The everlasting pursuit of perfection in his work was at all times paired with kindness, earning him immense appreciation and respect by faculty, staff, and students alike.

FAU's Department of Mathematical Sciences is grateful and proud to have had Dr. Jorge Viola-Prioli among our faculty, and we share our most sincere condolences with his wife, Dr. Ana de Viola-Prioli, his children, and his family. The passing of Jorge is an irreplaceable loss, but through his life-long dedication to mathematics and work with students, he built a lasting legacy that will not be forgotten. A memorial service in celebration of Jorge's life will be held at St. Jude Catholic Church in Boca Raton on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 9:30 am.  Family will be receiving friends before mass, from 9-9:30 am.

-----

El 1 o de enero de 2017 falleció nuestro distinguido colega y querido amigo Jorge Viola-Prioli. Jorge se unió al Departamento de Matemáticas de Florida Atlantic University en agosto de 2003 y desde entonces jugó un papel clave en el diseño  de nuestras clases y programas.  Jorge ejerció en nuestro departamento el puesto de Instructor Superior  y Profesor de Investigación, trabajando con sus estudiantes y apoyando a sus colegas, inclusive durante sus últimas semanas de vida.

El área de especialización de Jorge era álgebra, sin embargo todos los que tuvimos el honor de trabajar con él en persona también  lo reconocíamos como un profesor apasionado y un mentor con visión futurista y perspicaz. Él estuvo al frente de nuestro comité de estudios de grado, nos ayudó a mejorar los cursos de Matemáticas Discreta y de Métodos de Cálculo, implementó una evaluación robusta de nuestro programa de título de grado y contribuyó en muchas otras formas en nuestro departamento.

 Jorge también fue un profesor muy apreciado en la Universidad Simón Bolívar de Caracas, Venezuela y, como autor de libros de texto, afectó la experiencia educativa de numerosos estudiantes. Sus clases, tanto en Florida Atlantic University como en la Universidad Simón Bolívar, eran muy populares por su cuidadosa y meticulosa pedagogía. Ofreció a los estudiantes una maravillosa oportunidad de aprender, de crecer, y de ir en pos de sus metas profesionales.

Jorge fue un académico extraordinario  y un verdadero caballero con un sentido impecable de justicia. La constante búsqueda de perfección en su trabajo iba  la par con su generosidad,  ganándole un inmenso respeto y aprecio de parte de sus compañeros en el profesorado, al igual que del personal y de los estudiantes.

El Departamento de Matemáticas de FAU se siente agradecido y orgulloso de haber contado al Dr. Jorge Viola-Prioli entre sus profesores. Compartimos nuestras más sinceras condolencias con su esposa, la Dra. Ana de Viola-Prioli, sus hijos y su familia. El fallecimiento de Jorge es una pérdida irreparable, pero su dedicación a las matemáticas a lo largo de su vida y su trabajo con los estudiantes, han dejado un legado perdurable que no será olvidado. Un misa celebrando la vida de Jorge va  a llevarse a cabo en la iglesia católica de St. Jude en Boca Raton, el 14 de enero de 2017, a las 9:30 de la mañana. La familia va a recibir a amigos de 9 a 9:30, antes de la misa.
