Why Study Math at Baylor?
The Department of Mathematics has much to offer to both students and prospective faculty. With excellent facilities housed in the centrally located Sid Richardson building, the department has a faculty and staff dedicated to helping our students.
The math department welcomes new faculty this fall. Joining us are Postdoctoral Research Associate Dr. Antonio Ismael Cano Marmol, Lecturer of Mathematics Dr. Josiah Ireland, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Marcos Mazari-Armida, and Lecturer of Mathematics Dr. Kyunglim Nam.

A vast realm of mathematics which encompasses calculus and its extension into higher mathematics.
Focuses on ordinary and partial differential equations and discrete dynamical systems.
Mathematical physics studies conceptual frameworks which presumably describe physical phenomena.
Numerical analysis is the study of computer methods for solving math problems that arise in engineering and other scientific areas.
The area of mathematics that studies this amazing symmetry is called Lie theory or representation theory.
Topology is the study of the properties of spaces that are preserved under continuous transformation.
