Graduate breadth requirements

MMath

All Master's students are required to complete:

  • one Computation course
  • one Differential Equations course or one Techniques course

PhD

All PhD students are required to complete:

  • one Computation course
  • one Differential Equations course 
  • one Techniques course

If a PhD student has taken an equivalent course during a Master's program, this can be counted (upon approval from the graduate officer) towards completion of the breadth requirements, but does not reduce the total number of courses required. Likewise, students who have completed our MMath program will be able to use their MMath breadth courses toward completion of the PhD breadth requirement.

Computation

AMATH 740: Numerical Analysis (fall)

AMATH 741: Numerical PDEs (winter)

Differential equations

AMATH 751: Advanced ODEs (fall)

AMATH 753: Advanced PDEs (winter)

AMATH 777: Stochastic Processes (winter)

Techniques

AMATH 731: Applied Functional Analysis (fall)

AMATH 732: Asymptotics and Perturbation (fall)

Note: Students who started their graduate program before May 2014 may choose to satisfy either the breadth requirements above, or a grandfathered set of breadth requirements:

  • Two of AMATH 731, AMATH 732, AMATH 741 and AMATH 777 for Master's students.
  • Three of AMATH 731, AMATH 732, AMATH 741 and AMATH 777 for PhD students.

Detailed descriptions of the following programs can be found in the Graduate Studies Academic Calendar:

  • MMath Applied Mathematics
  • MMath Applied Mathematics (Quantum Information)
  • MMath Applied Mathematics (Water)
  • PhD Applied Mathematics
