Degrees
The Department of Mathematics at CUDenver offers the following two graduate
degrees in applied mathematics:
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Applied Mathematics
(Coordinated with the Department of Applied Mathematics at CUBoulder).
This degree is designed to give candidates a contemporary, indepth education
in applied mathematics and to provide research opportunities in the special
fields of computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, optimization,
applied statistics, applied probability, computer science and the mathematics
of science and engineering.
Master of Science (M.S.) in Applied Mathematics. This
degree is designed to prepare a candidate to assume a position as an applied
mathematician, a teacher or to continue studies at the Ph.D. level.
Prerequisites for Graduate Studies in Applied
Mathematics
Admission to the Graduate School requires at least a 2.75 grade point average
(gpa) in all undergraduate course work. The Mathematics Department does
not require applicants to submit GRE scores, but strongly recommends that
they do so, including the math subject test. Applicants to the doctoral
program who have an overall gpa below 3.0 or a gpa in math below 3.2 are
unlikely to be accepted without other strong supporting evidence, such
as high GRE scores. Students must also have the following preparation:
30 semester hours of mathematics, at least 24 of which are upper division
courses with a grade of B or better. These must include two
semesters of advanced calculus; one semester of linear algebra; and one
semester of abstract algebra, differential equations or discrete mathematics.
Occasionally a student may be admitted with the understanding that certain
deficiencies will be made up while the student is formally in the program,
but such course work does not constitute part of the graduate degree program.
In the case of students who do not have all the prerequisites, or who have
a low gpa, the Graduate Committee may recommend provisional admission.
Provisional students, however, are ineligible for financial aid, teaching
assistantships and/or classification as doctoral students.
Admission of international students requires TOEFL above 500, financial
documentation, and certified English translation of all records and references
not in English.
Admission Deadlines
A complete application packet (including two official transcripts, at least
three letters of recommendation, application part I and II, and application
fee) for admission into the graduate program must be submitted to the Graduate
Committee of the Department of Mathematics by the following dates in order
to enter the program at the beginning of the term indicated:
June 1 

for the following fall semester 
November 1 

for the following spring semester 
April 1 

for the following summer semester 
To be considered for a Teaching Assistantship, the completed packet must
be submitted to the Graduate Committee by the following dates:
February 15 

for the following fall semester 
October 1 

for the following spring semester 
Advising
Upon acceptance into the graduate program, each student is assigned an
adviser. At any time thereafter, by informing the graduate
program assistant, the
student may request and obtain a change in this assignment to reflect his
or her own developing interests.
A required orientation for all graduate students new to the Applied
Mathematics program and for all Ph.D. students in residence is held just
before the fall semester begins each year. The orientation provides information
about the department, the faculty, graduate program requirements, expectations
and realities, and an opportunity for students to meet with individual
faculty advisers.
During the first semester of graduate study each student is required
to set up a tentative plan of study with the adviser's help. The plan of
study, which will be part of the graduate student's permanent record, should
include a tentative list of courses to be taken in each semester. Both
the adviser and the student will sign the plan, which should be reviewed
at least once each year with the current adviser. All course substitutions
must be noted on the study plan.
Requirements for the M.S. Degree
1. General Requirements:
Students must complete at least 30 semester hours, of which at least 24
hours must be in mathematics courses numbered 5000 or above. At most six
hours may be in courses outside math at the 4000 level or above, if approved
by the student's adviser and by the Graduate Committee. The overall grade
point average must be 3.0 or higher. Courses in which grades below C+ (2.3)
are received will not be applied to the M.S. degree (but they do contribute
to the overall gpa).
At most 9 hours of transfer credit and 6 hours earned as nondegree student,
with grade B or better, may be applied towards the M.S. degree upon
approval of the Graduate Committee. Ten year time limit is in effect on
all course credit. Courses already used for another Master's degree cannot
be used towards the M.S. degree.
The following courses will not count toward a graduate degree
in applied mathematics: Math 5010, Math 5017, Math 5250, or Math 5260.
2. Math Clinic:
All students are encouraged to participate in at least one Math Clinic.
With the approval of the student's adviser, a clinic may be used in lieu
of a stated area requirement. Details about current and upcoming projects
are available from the Clinic Director.
3. Advisory Committee:
By the end of the first year of graduate study, each student will have
chosen an adviser to chair his/her Advisory Committee. With this adviser's
help, the student will choose two additional members for the Advisory Committee.
All three members must be on the graduate faculty, and at least two will
be members of the department.
4. Thesis Option:
Each student is encouraged to write a thesis. A student who elects the
thesis option must register to from four to six semester thesis hours from
the 30 required hours. Although original work is encouraged, the thesis
may be expository in nature. The topic should be within a relevant area
of applied mathematics and should be chosen with the approval of the adviser.
The thesis should be prepared in TeX, LaTeX, or AMSTeX and must comply
in format with the specifications of the Graduate School. A typed copy
of the thesis will be available to all members of the Advisory Committee
at least three weeks before the defense. Eighteen days before the date
of graduation, three complete copies of the thesis must be filed with the
Graduate School. The student must provide a single postscript file with
an attached statement giving the Department the right to distribute the
thesis as it wishes.
5. Final Examination:
All students must take and pass a final oral exam. The exam will be given
by the student's Advisory Committee. For students choosing the thesis option,
the exam will consist of a one hour defense of the thesis. The examining
committee may declare that the thesis defense was satisfactory but request
that the student make further changes before the thesis is filed with the
department and the Graduate School, and specify a deadline and the manner
in which the revised thesis will be reviewed. In that case, the student
does not need to register for further thesis credit hours, but the requirements
for the master's degree are not satisfied until the final version of the
thesis is approved by the student's Advisory Committee and the Graduate
School. If no member of the committee raises further questions or objections
within 30 days after the revised thesis has been received by the chair
of the committee, the thesis will be considered approved by the Advisory
Committee.
Students choosing the nonthesis option will give a one hour presentation
and answer questions on a relatively specific topic which has been selected
in consultation with the adviser. A student who does not pass the exam
on the first attempt may take it again after three months. Guidelines for
oral presentations and thesis defenses are available in the mathematics
department.
6. Time Limits for Completion of Degree:
Master's degree students have five years from the date of the start of
course work to complete all degree requirements.
7. Course Requirements by Area:
The core courses, Math 5070 (Applied Analysis) or Math 6131 (Real Analysis),
and Math 5718 (Applied Linear Algebra) are required of all M.S. students.
All optional courses are subject to approval by the student's adviser.
In addition, the requirements in one of the following areas must be satisfied.

Requirements for the Ph.D. Degree
Admission to the Ph.D. Program
The requirements for admission to the Ph.D. program are the same as those
given for admission to graduate study, although a master's degree in mathematics
may be accepted in lieu of the specific requirements listed there. Ph.D.
applicants with course work deficiencies may be accepted into the master's
degree program with the understanding that they could possibly be accepted
into the Ph.D. program once the deficiencies have been remedied.
Graduation Requirements
There are six phases to the Ph.D. program. A candidate must fulfill course
requirements, pass the preliminary examinations, establish a Ph.D. Committee,
meet the academic residency and participation requirements, pass the comprehensive
examination, and write and defend a thesis.
1. Course requirements:
Students without Masters degree must complete at least 42 credit hours
of graduate courses. Students with a Masters degree must complete at least
30 credit hours of graduate courses. Upon approval of the Graduate Committee,
at most 18 hours of the credit already applied to the Master's degree
and 6 hours earned as nondegree student, with grade B or better, may be
transferred to the Ph.D. degree. All course work must be completed with
at least a 3.25 grade point average. Grades below a B are not acceptable
for the Ph.D. Any doctoral student who receives a grade of C+ or lower,
or whose overall gpa as a doctoral student falls below a 3.25 gpa, will
be reviewed by the Graduate Committee and may be put on probation or suspended.
The following courses are required as a part of the above 42, resp. 30
credit hours:
4 PhD level courses, at 3 credit hours each 
Math Clinic (Math 5779), 3 credit hours 
3 Readings Courses (Math 79217926), 1 credit hour each. 
Courses at the 7000 level (excluding readings courses and thesis hours)
are considered Ph.D. level courses for this requirement, and selected 5000
and/or 6000 level courses may be used in place of 7000 level courses with
the consent of the student's adviser. The Readings Courses are one credit
hour seminar courses which are announced usually just before the semester
offered. All courses should be chosen in consultation with an adviser.
Equivalent courses approved by the Graduate Committee, such as a Computer
Science Clinic and Readings in Computer Science, are acceptable to satisfy
the Math Clinic and Readings requirements.
2. Preliminary examinations:
Each student must pass three preliminary examinations:

1. Applied Analysis

2. Applied Linear Algebra

3. A special area exam in one of

 Discrete Mathematics

 Optimization

 Numerical and Computational Mathematics

 Probability and Statistics

 Science and Engineering Mathematics

 Computer Science
These are three hour written examinations. The first two examinations cover
material roughly at the level of first year of graduate study; the special
area
examination is approximately at the master's level in the respective discipline.
The preliminary examinations in applied analysis and applied linear algebra
will be offered two times a year, from 10 AM to 1 PM on the first and the
second Saturdays of the fall and spring semesters. The special area
examination will be scheduled during the first month of each spring
semester, but may be offered more frequently upon request. A student
wishing to take any preliminary exam must
sign up for the exam with the graduate program assistant at least
one
month prior to the administration of the exam. Students who cannot take
the exam as planned must give notice of withdrawal at least one week in
advance of the exam. See section 8 for time limits.
Students may take the Applied Analysis and/or Applied Linear Algebra
exams without penalty during their first three semesters (first semester
only if they are entering the program with a Master's degree in
Mathematics) in the program. After that time, a student who has failed one
of these exams can petition the Graduate Committee for another attempt.
Students not in the Ph.D. program (but in a Master's program at CUDenver)
are limited to at most two attempts for each of these preliminary exams.
There is no penalty free administration of the special area exams and
only students in the Ph.D. program may take these exams. The examination
committee shall determine appropriate action in cases of failure or low
passes of this exam.
3. Ph.D. Advisory
Committee:
Each student must choose an adviser and, with the adviser's help, select
other members of the Ph.D. committee. The Ph.D. Committee assumes responsibility
for advising the student on matters concerning the requirements for the
Ph.D. degree, conducting and determining the outcome of the comprehensive
exam, and acting as the examining committee for the student's dissertation
defense. The composition of this committee must be approved by the Mathematics
Graduate Committee at least 30 days before the student takes the comprehensive
exam. If the committee membership changes after the comprehensive examination,
the adviser must again request approval by the Graduate Committee at least
30 days before the date of the defense.
The Ph.D. Advisory Committee consists of five graduate faculty from
the CU system, one of whom is the student's adviser. At least one committee
member must be from outside the mathematics department, and at least one
must be a regular faculty member of the mathematics department. Committee
members may be from outside the CU system, but must be granted special
membership on the CU graduate faculty for this purpose. The Chair of the
Ph.D. Committee must be a regular member of CUDenver mathematics faculty.
The main role of the Chair is to assure compliance with the rules of the
program. Normally the Chair and the thesis adviser are the same person,
but it is possible for the thesis adviser to be from elsewhere, e.g., another
department at CU, a government lab, another university, or industry. At
least three members of the Ph.D. Committee will be chosen to represent
the three areas of the student's oral comprehensive examination.
4. Residency and Participation:
By Graduate School requirements, all Ph.D. candidates must accumulate six
semesters of residence credit at the University of Colorado beyond the
bachelor's degree (although two of these six semesters may be replaced
by a master's degree in mathematics earned at another institution). For
this purpose a full course load is defined to be five semester hours of
course work. The manner in which residence credits may be accumulated is
described in the Graduate School Rules.
In order to foster participation in the life of the department and immersion
in research, each student is expected to spend at least two consecutive
semesters as a full time student without employment outside the university.
When this is not feasible, it shall be the responsibility of the student's
Ph.D. Advisory Committee to consider the special situation of the student
and to respond to a proposal from the student concerning the manner in
which the participation requirement shall be satisfied. By whatever means
the student's Ph.D. Committee decides to fulfill the participation requirement,
it must uphold the spirit of this requirement. In other words, the student
is expected to attend department functions, such as Colloquia and Orientation
Day.
5. Comprehensive Examination:
Application for candidacy to the Ph.D. program must be made at least two
weeks before the comprehensive examination is taken. Candidacy will be
granted after at least three semesters of residence have been earned, all
preliminary and comprehensive examinations have been passed, and essentially
all course requirements have been satisfied.
The comprehensive examination is designed to determine a student's mastery
of graduate level mathematics and ability to embark upon thesis research.
The examination consists of presentation of a thesis proposal and an oral
examination from three areas, chosen from the following list:

1. Applied Statistics

2. Applied Probability

3. Computational Mathematics

4. Discrete Mathematics

5. Optimization

6. Differential Equations and Applications

7. Computer Science

8. Abstract Algebra and Applications

9. Real, Complex, and Functional Analysis

10. An independent area approved by the Graduate Committee

upon the request of the student's Ph.D. Committee at least

30 days before the comprehensive examination.
One of the chosen areas must be the background for the proposed thesis.
The extent of the coverage of the chosen areas will be determined by the
student's Ph.D. Committee. Preparation for the oral examination should
be done in consultation with the members of that committee. The committee
will conduct the examination and determine its outcome. The exam is open
to all members of the graduate faculty and members of the mathematics faculty
will be notified of comprehensive exams at least one week in advance. Students
failing the comprehensive exam may petition the Graduate Committee for
the second attempt. If the second attempt is granted, the student's Ph.D.
Committee will determine the form and extent of the reexamination. See
page ten for time limits.
After completion of the comprehensive examination, students become candidates
for the doctoral degree and must register during each regular semester
of the academic year until graduation for no less than five thesis hours
and no more than ten thesis hours. Students may register for thesis hours
before the completion of the comprehensive examination with the following
limitations. A student may not enroll for thesis hours before the semester
in which the last preliminary exam is passed. Prior to the completion of
the comprehensive examination, a student may not enroll for more than six
thesis hours per semester.
6. Thesis:
Candidates for the Ph.D. degree are required to write a dissertation containing
original contributions and evidence of significant scholarship. The thesis
is written under the guidance of an adviser who is a member of the graduate
faculty of the University of Colorado. The thesis must comply in format
with the specifications of the Graduate School and must be prepared in
TeX, LaTeX, or AMSTeX. Six weeks before the date of graduation, the Graduate
School must be notified by the candidate of the dissertation title. Thirty
days before the final thesis defense, the thesis must be available in typewritten
form. Eighteen days before the date of graduation, three complete copies
of the thesis must be filed with the Graduate School. The student must
provide a single postscript file with an attached statement giving the
department the right to distribute the thesis as it wishes.
At least thirty days before the date of graduation, the candidate must
present and defend the dissertation before an examining committee. The
examining committee, denoted above as the student's Ph.D. Advisory Committee,
must be approved by the Graduate Committee and the Dean of the Graduate
School. The examining committee may declare that the thesis defense was
satisfactory but request that the student make further changes before the
thesis is filed with the department and the Graduate School, and specify
a deadline and the manner in which the revised thesis will be reviewed.
In that case, the student does not need to register for further thesis
credit hours, but the requirements for the Ph.D. degree are not satisfied
until the final version of the thesis is approved by the student's Ph.D
committee and the Graduate School. If no member of the committee raises
further questions or objections within 30 days after the revised thesis
has been received by the chair of the committee, the thesis will be considered
approved by the Ph.D. Committee.
Each student must also complete at least 30 hours of thesis credit.
Not more than 10 of these hours may be taken in any one semester. Not more
than 10 thesis hours taken prior to the semester of the comprehensive examination
may be applied to this requirement.
7. Language Requirement:
The University of Colorado permits each department to decide whether or
not to implement a foreign language requirement. The Mathematics Department
adopted the following:
Recognizing that the need for knowledge of a foreign language
to do research in an area varies from no languages in many areas to one
or two languages in a few areas, the department has no formal language
requirement. Instead, the necessity for some level of proficiency in a
foreign language is left to the discretion of each student's major adviser,
as is the case for other matters related to a student's preparation for
doing research.
8. Time Limits
All examinations and defenses must be scheduled and announced at least
two weeks in advance.
Preliminary examinations: Students must pass the Applied Analysis and
Applied Linear Algebra exams before the end of their fourth semester in
the program or the completion of 24 hours of graduate course work,
whichever comes first (third semester, or 18 hours for students entering
the program with a Master's degree in mathematics). All preliminary exams
must be passed before the completion of 30 hours of graduate coursework
(fourth semester, or 24 hours, whichever comes first, for students
entering the program with a Master's degree in any area).
Ph.D. Committee: Students must select an adviser and a Ph.D. committee
by the end of the semester in which all preliminary exams have been
passed.
Comprehensive examinations: Students must pass the comprehensive
examination by the end of the seventh semester in the program (sixth
semester for students entering the program with a Master's degree in any
area), or by the time set by the student's Ph.D. committee.
All requirements for the Ph.D. degree must be completed within four
years of passing the comprehensive examination and within seven years of
entering the Ph.D. program.
It is recognized that flexibility is necessary, especially for transfer
and parttime students; hence petitions for exceptions will be considered
by the Graduate Committee. The seven year deadline for completing the Ph.D.
is imposed by the Graduate School and exceptions require its approval.
Transitional Rules
All graduate students currently accepted to the applied mathematics
program (both master's and doctoral) will have the option of graduating
under the rules in effect when they matriculated.
Leave of Absence
Students may request a leave of absence from the Ph.D. program. The student
must be in good standing, indicate the return date, give justification
for the leave of absence, agree to contact his/her adviser and the Graduate
Committee at least once per semester, and agree not to use campus facilities
(except email through Mathematics Department computers). Each petition
must be approved by the Mathematics Graduate Committee and submitted to
the CLAS Dean and the Graduate School for further approval.
A leave of absence does not extend deadlines automatically; this requires
a separate petition after returning from the leave of absence. A leave
of absence does allow the student to interrupt registration for thesis
hours following the comprehensive exam.
Types of Financial Support
Doctoral Fellowships
The Graduate Committee awards a limited number of fellowships to doctoral
students based on scholarship and promise of completing the Ph.D. degree.
The duration of a fellowship is one year. Each fellowship provides tuition
and a stipend, and the recipient is expected to make significant progress
toward the Ph.D. by taking courses, studying for and taking the preliminary
and comprehensive exams, and conducting research. Additionally the fellow
may be required to do grading or teach a class.
Teaching Assistantships
The usual term of a teaching assistantship is an academic year, with the
understanding that the appointment for the second semester depends upon
the satisfactory completion of duties during the first semester as well
as satisfactory progress toward a degree. The duties of a teaching assistant
consist of teaching courses and/or assisting in the Mathematics Education
Resource Center (MERC computer lab) for various undergraduate courses.
Occasionally other duties may be assigned, but the standard work load is
20 hours per week. Details related to teaching assistantships are explained
in the document Policies Regarding Teaching Assistants.
A limited number of first year teaching assistants without Colorado
residency may be awarded outofstate tuition differentials. All such students
who are U.S.A. residents are expected to gain instate residency by the
beginning of the second year of study.
Research Assistantships
Another type of appointment, dependent upon the contracts and grants of
individual faculty members, is that of research assistant. Appointments
are made and duties assigned by faculty members with external funding.
These appointments are normally not given to new graduate students. The
workload for these appointments is also understood to be 20 hours per week.
Lynn Bateman Memorial Teaching Award
The Lynn Bateman Memorial Teaching Award, a cash award of $1,000, has been
established to honor the memory of Lynn Bateman by annually recognizing
and rewarding a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Mathematics who,
in the opinion of the faculty of the Mathematics Department, has excelled
in teaching. (See the Policies Regarding Teaching Assistants for further
details.)
