Department of Social and Human Science Informatics
Mathematical Sciences and Informatics

Understanding and applying the creation, storage, transmission, and control of information require various basic mathematical theories and related applied theories. Students in the Mathematical Sciences and Informatics specialization will study and research a wide range of subjects in mathematical and computer science including mathematics, information science, computational science, and systems science in addition to the computer skills to support these efforts. Methods to formulate, analyze, and control mathematical models of natural societal phenomena as well as artificial and hypothetical phenomena will also be studied.

In the Mathematical Sciences and Informatics specialization, we will study and research:

  1. Foundations of mathematics, mathematical logic, and their applications in information science
  2. Stochastic analyses and their application to mathematical finance and information theory
  3. Numerical analysis methods and their applications
  4. Analysis and design of information systems based on process thought
