The faculty of our large Mathematics Department has a wide variety of interests. Typically, 30-40 students each year complete the A.B. or B.S. major in mathematics or the A.B. joint major in mathematics and economics.
Independent study courses are usually offered at the request of interested students. Course topics have included statistics, topology, differential equations, geometry, the history of mathematics, Galois theory, matroids, combinatorics, transcendental numbers, differential geometry, fluid dynamics, number theory, and probabilistic models.
Below is a list of some recent honors theses. For a longer list (dating back to 1938), visit the Lafayette library catalog.
