Recent Publications

Dr. Tim Ford, has written a new 
textbook entitles, Separable Algebra.
Due to be published on October 20, 2017,
this book presents a comprehensive
introduction to the theory of separable
algebras over commutative rings.
Azumaya algebras, the henselization of
local rings, and Galois theory are
rigorously introduced and treated.
Essential connections are drawn
between the theory of separable
algebras and Morita theory, the theory
of faithfully flat descent, cohomology,
derivations, differentials, reflexive lattices,
maximal orders, and class groups.

Minor in Statistics

The minor enables students to pursue knowledge in statistics while pursuing a major in other disciplines, including mathematics.

The required curriculum provides necessary statistical foundations of the field and practical applications relevant to their chosen area of specialization.

Each course must be completed with a grade of at least a C. To complete the minor in statistics, one has to complete the following required courses:

Title Course Credits
Calculus 1 or Calculus for Engineers 1 MAC 2311 or MAC 2281 4
Calculus 2 or Calculus for Engineers 2 MAC 2312 or MAC 2282 4
Matrix Theory MAS 2103 3
Core Required Courses
Applied Statistics Lab STA 4202L 1
Applied Statistics 1 STA 4234 2
Probability and Statistics 1 STA 4442 3
Probability and Statistics 2 or Probability and Statistics for Engineers STA 4443 or STA 4032 3
To complete the program, students must select two electives from the following:
Intermediate Econometrics ECO 4422 3
Introduction to Queuing Theory MAP 4260 3
Statistical Mechanics PHY 4523 3
Computational Statistics 1 STA 4102 3
Computational Statistics 2 STA 4103 3
Applied Statistics 2 STA 4702 3
Applied Time Series and Forecasting STA 4853 3
Mathematics and Statistics Total   26
