The Graduate Program in Mathematics is large enough to encompass research and courses in many areas, yet small enough to remain responsive to the needs of individual students. There are approximately 80 graduate students, 40 professors, and 15 postdoctoral and visiting researchers. The active areas of research include: algebraic geometry, analysis (real, complex, functional and harmonic), analytic functions, applied mathematics, financial mathematics and mathematics of insurance, commutative rings, scattering theory, differential equations (ordinary and partial), differential geometry, dynamical systems, general relativity, mathematical physics, number theory, probabilistic analysis and topology.

The Mathematical Sciences Building houses a library with more than 34,000 volumes and 430 journal titles. MU students have access to an extensive array of computing resources.
