Welcome to UW AMATH

Applied and computational mathematics encompasses some of the most diverse and interdisciplinary research in the physical, engineering, and biological sciences. The Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington provides a dynamic and engaging graduate training environment that is especially strong in scientific computing and in the application areas of mathematical biology (ecology, biochemistry, neuroscience), nonlinear waves and coherent structures (water waves and tsunamis, lasers, nonlinear optics), climate modeling (atmospheric dynamics, global warming) and modern mathematical methods (inverse problems, numerical analysis, optimization).
