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 Department of Mathematical Sciences at Binghamton University is pleased to host the 2015 Zassenhaus Group Theory Conference on the Memorial Day weekend, Friday May 22 to Sunday May 24, 2015. This conference continues the series of Ohio State-Denison Mathematics Conferences first organized in the 1960's by Hans Zassenhaus.
The 7th Annual Binghamton University Graduate Conference in Algebra and Topology was held on October 18-19, 2014. It was again a great success with about 90 registered participants (from many states and two countries) and two excellent key note speakers, Justin Moore (Cornell University) and Danny Calegari (University of Chicago).
This event is organized by our graduate students for graduate students. In addition to the key note talks, there were 26 talks given by graduate students over the weekend.

On October 16, 2014, the Department of Mathematical Sciences celebrated the retirement of Prof. Shelly Zacks. Speeches in honor of Shelly's long and productive career were made by Prof. Anton Schick, Chairman of the DOMS, Harvey Stenger, President of Binghamton University, and Prof. Nitis Mukhopadhyay (University of Connecticut-Storrs), colleague and co-author of Prof. Zacks. Pictures from the party are posted here.
