Library & Computing

Mathematics Library

An important resource for all faculty and graduate students is the Mathematics Library within the Shapiro Undergraduate Library. With a collection of 25,000 monographs and 750 regular journal subscriptions, it is one of the leading collections in the United States. Its open stacks and reading room are in the central Science Library at 3175 Shapiro and are available 130 hours per week. There is a long list of online journals and other resources. Math-SciNet is available for free use from any terminal connected to the central computing system.

Information and Technology Services

Computing facilities and recources are of extreme importance for mathematicians. At the University of Michigan, there is a strong commitment to keeping abreast of the latest developments. Computers are widely available for students in the Department. They are connected to central printers, and there are also copiers/scanners available in the administrative areas. Other computing resources, including freely available software, access to poster printing, and general IT help is available through LSA-IT.

Center for Advanced Computing

The mathematics department has recently acquired a 228-processor computing cluster through an NSF SCREMS grant. It allows top priority access for projects in the department, and is part of the University's much larger Center for Advanced Computing, where systems with thousands of processors are maintained for use by the university research community.

Educational Activities & Seminars

Math Seminars

The mathematical vitality of the Department may be measured, in part, by the number of educational activities that take place outside the traditional classroom. Most research areas organize one or more seminars that meet once or twice each week. The Colloquium meets each week for a talk aimed at a general mathematical audience, usually by a visitor from another university. Often, additional special lectures are scheduled as a forum for other short-term visitors. All of these are announced in a weekly bulletin posted on the department website.

Oral Defense Schedule

Attending a dissertation defense not only can be helpful to prepare for your own defense, but can be educational as well.  Rackham maintains a schedule of defense dates for all of the graduate students.

Rackham Programs and Events

The Rackham Graduate School offers a wide range of programs, discussions, and workshops for students.  Sample topics include: program perspectives, career paths, and how to write a dissertation.

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

The SIAM  student chapter at the University of Michigan was set up in the Fall of 2009. Our missions include:

  • Promoting professional interactions between applied mathematicians both at the University of Michigan and within the Industry.
  • Enhancing interest in topics pertaining to Applied Mathematics.
  • Supplying professional opportunities for the Applied Mathematic community at the University of Michigan.
  • Providing a forum for the exchange of information and ideas between mathematicians and other technical and scientific personnel.

Student AIM Seminar

The Mathematics Department hosts seminars for Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics students.  Check out the schedule here!

Summer Programs

Institute for Mathematics and its Applications

Programs through the IMA (Institute for Mathematics and its Applications), based in Minneapolis at the University of Minnesota. Michigan is a "particpating institution" in the IMA which means that most activities are highly subsidized for our graduate students. Here is a complete list of the summer programs at IMA.
