MATHEMATICS MINOR

 Program Description: Mathematicians study concepts and theories used to solve problems involving quantitative relationships. Opportunities for mathematically-oriented graduates exist in such areas as physics, engineering, space technology, economics, business management, statistics, actuarial sciences, operations research, medical research, environmental sciences, and teaching.

The Mathematics minor prepares graduates for positions in industry and teaching or to continue their education in graduate programs.

MATHEMATICS LOGIC MINOR

Program Description: Mathematical logic is the study of the processes used in mathematical deduction. It has origins in philosophy. This is because the usual rules for inference and deduction can only be shown by nonmathematical argument. The program of study will examine the nature of formal systems including first-order and second-order logic. Methods of proof will be studied. Much of mathematical logic is based on the assumption that the notion of a set is unambiguous. This assumption was noticed not to be tme over a century ago. Fuzzy set theory replaces the yes/no statement of set membership with a qualitative predicate. Related fields will be open to study, e.g., Algebraic Logic. Applications to Law will be featured.
