Welcome to the Homepage of DOMS
The Department of Mathematical Sciences (DOMS) is a community of mathematicians and mathematical statisticians. We offer degrees at the Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral level. Thus, besides our faculty and post-doctoral visitors, our community includes a large and valuable cadre of hard-working and talented undergraduate and graduate students.
At the undergraduate level, we have two kinds of degrees: general degrees for majors in the mathematical sciences are labeled Bachelor of Arts (BA), while our more intensive undergraduate degrees are labeled Bachelor of Science (BS). There are actuarial science tracks within both degrees. For more details, see the page on the undergraduate programs. A minor in mathematics is also possible.
At the graduate level, we have the PhD and Master of Arts (MA) degrees. We cooperate with the School of Education in their Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree for future high school teachers. There is also a combined five-year BA/MAT degree. For more details, see the page on the graduate programs. We will soon add a professionally oriented MA degree in Applied Statistics.
While our highest degree is a PhD “in mathematics”, a significant number of our doctoral dissertations are written on research topics in mathematical statistics.
All faculty members and post-doctoral visitors are active researchers. The main areas of concentration in the department are: Algebra, Analysis, Combinatorics, Geometry/Topology and Statistics.

The 7th Annual Binghamton University Graduate Conference in Algebra and Topology is to be held at Binghamton University, October 18-19, 2014. There will be talks throughout the day Saturday and also Sunday morning. Lunch will be provided on Saturday and there will be a banquet, at a cost of $15, Saturday evening.
Deadline for registration is October 11, 2014 and abstracts for talks should be also submitted by October 11, 2014. Registration can be done through the conference website.
Travel assistance is available with priority given to those giving talks.
The 32nd Ohio State-Denison Mathematics Conference was held from Friday, May 9 through Sunday, May 11, 2014 at The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. It had sessions on Group Theory and Ring Theory. The conference was initiated by Professor Hans Zassenhaus in the early 60s and has a long tradition.
The Group Theory Session was dedicated to Professor Luise-Charlotte Kappe (Binghamton University).
Fernando Guzman and Joseph Brennan were among the session organizers. Professor Emerita Luise-Charlotte Kappe has been with the department since 1968.
