|Description||"The mathematics curriculum emphasizes solving problems by rigorous methods that use both calculation and structure. Starting from the freshman year, students discuss the subject intensely with one another outside the classroom and learn to write lucid arguments.
The major is grounded in analysis and algebra through the four years of study. A student typically will also take upper-division courses in areas such as computer science, probability and statistics, combinatorics, and the topics of the senior-level courses that change from year to year. In particular, the department offers a range of upper-division computer science offerings, while recent topics courses have covered elliptic curves, polytopes, modular forms, Lie groups, representation theory, and hyperbolic geometry. A year of physics is required for the degree. The year-long senior thesis involves working closely with a faculty member on a topic of the student's choice."
