Welcome to the Homepage of
Department of Mathematical Sciences
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 Mathematical Sciences are labeled Bachelor of Arts (BA), while our more intensive undergraduate degrees are labeled Bachelor of Science (BS). There are both mathematics tracks and 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 in Mathematical Sciences, Master of Arts (MA) in Mathematics, and Master of Arts (MA) in Statistics degrees. We cooperate with the Department 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.
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.

Starting from this semester, the Math Club will post a problem every Friday to encourage our undergraduate students to enjoy the beauty of mathematics outside of the classroom. Some of the problem do not require much mathematics background while some require certain basic training.
Answers should be sent to Jaiung Jun (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Thursday (a day prior to a new problem).
The first problem of the series is:
Circle A rolls one time around circle B whose radius is three times that of circle A. A letter A is drawn inside circle A. How many times will the letter A rotate? (Hint: It's not 3)
See future problems at Problem of the Week webpage.
The 9th Annual Binghamton University Graduate Conference in Algebra and Topology (BUGCAT) is to be held at Binghamton University, October 15th and 16th, 2016.
This year's featured keynotes are Profs. Khalid Bou-Rabee, Thomas Koberda, and Luise-Charlotte Kappe.
Deadline for registration is Monday, October 3rd and abstracts for talks should be also submitted by this day. Registration can be done through the conference website.
Joshua Palmatier, who received his mathematics Ph.D. in 2005 from the department, currently a math professor at SUNY Oneonta, was featured in an article in Press and Sun-Bulletin, a local media. The article was titled ”The math professor who writes fantasy novels”.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences is pleased to introduce the Honors Calculus course in Fall 2016. The course number is Math 222H. It meets MWF 9:40 and R 11:40.
