Welcome to Mathematics and Statistics

With close to 60 full time faculty and staff members, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at UNC Charlotte has the largest and most diverse staff at the university, with faculty members having a wide range research interests in fields of pure mathematics such as algebra, analysis and topology, as well as in fields of applied mathematics such as computational mathematics, mathematical physics, partial differential equations, and statistics. Mathematics Education is also a strong component of the department.

The department offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in mathematics, M.S. degrees in mathematics, and Doctoral degrees with concentrations in applied mathematics and statistics. Additionally, the department also offers M.S. degrees in Mathematical Finance jointly with the Departments of Finance and Economics in the Belk College of Business Administration.

Data Adaptive Support Vector Machine, with Application in Prostate Cancer Imaging Data

2:00PM, Fretwell 120
   April 26, 2019

Hosted by Dr. Yanqing Sun, UNC Charlotte

Support vector machines (SVM) have been widely used as classifiers in various settings including pattern recognition, texture mining and image retrieval. However, such methods are faced with newly emerging challenges such as imbalanced observations and noise data. In this talk, I will discuss the impact of noise data and imbalanced observations...

Inverse problems for hyperbolic PDEs

11:00AM-12:00PM, Fretwell 122
   April 12, 2019

Professor Rakesh Dept. Mathematical Sciences, University of Delaware

Abstract: We state and moticate (oil prospecting, medical imaging, radar, etc.) some inverse problems for the wave equation. We then describe some of the important theoretical results and end with two omportant ideas in proving these results.

Kolmogorov Entropy Compactness Estimates for nonlinear PDEs

11:00AM-12:00PM, Fretwell 315
   April 1, 2019

Professor Khai Nguyen Dept. Mathematics, NC State University

Abstract. Inspired by a question posed by Lax in 2002, in recent years it has received an increasing attention the study on the quantitative analysis of compactness for nonlinear PDEs. In this talk, I will present recent results on the sharp compactness estimates in terms of Kolmogorov epsilon entropy for hyperbolic...
