The Department of Mathematics is established in 1984. As of Spring 2016, the department has 20 faculty members, 2 supporting staffs and 4 postdocs. There are 217 undergraduate students (in applied mathematics or financial mathematics), 55 master students (in pure mathematics or applied mathematics) and 13 doctoral students (in pure mathematics).
Besides courses for students majoring in mathematics, the department offers calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics for undergraduate students in business, engineering, medicine and science. Faculty’s research includes complex analysis, dynamic systems and ergodic theory, differential geometry, harmonic analysis, image processing, numerical analysis, operational research, PDEs, probability and statistics, representation theory, and topology etc. Our research is supported by various funding bodies, especially the National Natural Science Foundation, the Ministry of Education, and the Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province. Our faculty members are highly recognized by their research, teaching and service. Some of them have been awarded, for their achievements, at national and provincial levels. The department is currently under rapid expansion. To strengthen our teaching and broaden our research, up to 10 new faculty members and 10 postdocs are expected to be recruited during the 2016-2020 period.
