Mathematics teaches you to think, analytically and creatively. It is a foundation for advanced careers in a knowledge-based economy. Students who develop strong backgrounds in mathematics often have distinct advantages in other fields such as physics, computer science, economics, and finance.

The past century has been remarkable for discovery in mathematics. From space and number to stability and chaos, mathematical ideas evolve in the domain of pure thought. But the relationship between abstract thought and the real world is itself a source of mathematical inspiration. Problems in computer science, economics and physics have opened new fields of mathematical inquiry. And discoveries at the most abstract level lead to breakthroughs in applied areas, sometimes long afterwards.

The University of Toronto has the top mathematics department in Canada, and hosts the nearby Fields Institute (an international centre for research in mathematics). The Department offers students excellent opportunities to study the subject and glimpse current research frontiers. The Department offers three mathematical Specialist programs - Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics and its Applications - as well as Major and Minor programs and several joint Specialist programs with other disciplines (for example, with Computer Science, Economics, Philosophy, Physics and Statistics).

The Specialist program in Mathematics is for students who want a deep knowledge of the subject. This program has been the main training-ground for Canadian mathematicians. A large proportion of our Mathematics Specialist graduates gain admission to the worlds best graduate schools. The Specialist program in Applied Mathematics is for students interested in the fundamental ideas in areas of mathematics that are directed towards applications. The mathematics course requirements in the first two years are the same as in the Mathematics Specialist program; a strong student can take the courses needed to get a degree in both Specialist programs.

These programs are challenging, but small classes with excellent professors and highly-motivated students provide a stimulating and friendly learning environment.

The Specialist program in Mathematics and its Applications is recommended to students with strong interests in mathematics and with career goals in areas such as teaching, computer science, and the physical sciences. The program is flexible; there is a core of courses in mathematics and related disciplines, but you can choose among several areas of concentration. The mathematics courses required for the program are essentially the same as those required for a Major in Mathematics. (They are less intense than the courses required for the Specialist programs above.) In many cases it is possible to complete a Specialist program in Mathematics and its Applications with a given concentration along with a major in the other subject without taking many extra courses. You might even consider choosing your options to fulfill the requirements for a double Specialist degree, in both Mathematics and its Applications and in the other discipline.

The Specialist program in Mathematical Applications in Economics and Finance is recommended to students with career aspirations in any form of the financial sector. Furthermore, the program is an excellent preparation for an MBA and an MMF. The Professional Experience Year program (PEY: see index) is available to eligible, full-time Specialist students after their second year of study. The PEY program is an optional 12-16 month work term providing industrial experience; its length often allows students to have the rewarding experience of initiating and completing a major project.

The Department operates a non-credit course, PUMP, limited to students admitted to the University. It is designed for students who require additional pre-university mathematics background. Details can be found at www.math.toronto.edu/cms/pump.

First Year Seminars

The 199Y1 and 199H1 seminars are designed to provide the opportunity to work closely with an instructor in a class of no more than twenty-four students. These interactive seminars are intended to stimulate the students’ curiosity and provide an opportunity to get to know a member of the professorial staff in a seminar environment during the first year of study. Details here.

MAT436H1 Introduction to Linear Operators[36L]

The course will survey the branch of mathematics developed (in its abstract form) primarily in the twentieth century and referred to variously as functional analysis, linear operators in Hilbert space, and operator algebras, among other names (for instance, more recently, to reflect the rapidly increasing scope of the subject, the phrase non-commutative geometry has been introduced). The intention will be to discuss a number of the topics in Pedersen's textbook Analysis Now. Students will be encouraged to lecture on some of the material, and also to work through some of the exercises in the textbook (or in the suggested reference books).

MAT437H1 Topics in Operator Algebras: K-Theory and C* Algebras[36L]

The course will begin with a description of the method (K-theoretical in spirit) used by Murray and von Neumann to give a rough initial classification of von Neumann algebras (into types I, II, and III). It will centre around the relatively recent use of K-theory to study Bratteli's approximately finite-dimensional C*-algebras---both to classify them (a result that can be formulated and proved purely algebraically), and to prove that the class of these C*-algebras---what Bratteli called AF algebras---is closed under passing to extensions (a result that uses the Bott periodicity feature of K-theory).

Students will be encouraged to prepare oral or written reports on various subjects related to the course, including basic theory and applications
