Welcome to the University of Tennessee Department of Mathematics
The department's mission is the discovery and dissemination of pure and applied mathematics, including, but not limited to, algebra, analysis, differential geometry, mathematical ecology, numerical analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, probability, scientific computing, and topology.
Our faculty publish numerous books and research articles and regularly present their research at major
conferences and symposia.
Many hold research grants from national agencies and several serve on editorial
boards for journals and as officers in important
mathematical and scientific organizations. We teach a complete spectrum of
mathematics courses. We offer a comprehensive
undergraduate program, a nationally recognized
honors program for undergraduates, a summer
Research Experience for Undergraduates, and several
graduate programs leading to masters and doctoral degrees. Many of our faculty have won
teaching awards. Our service to the community includes running the annual
UT/Pro2Serve Math Contest for high school students, and hosting
Barrett Lectures and other conferences.
