The Department of Mathematical Sciences hosts several research and professional development seminars. The following groups host seminars:
This table lists the seminars hosted by CDAS, CFD, and Math of OR. All of these seminars take place on Thursday afternoons from 14:00 to 14:55 except for the seminar on 24 September (FA49 Jobs) which will take place from 12:50 to 13:45.

The Omar N. Bradley Officer Research Fellowships in Mathematics
Omar Nelson Bradley by Clarence MacNelly
The Omar N. Bradley Foundation will, in 2015, grant ten Omar N. Bradley Officer Research Fellowships in Mathematics. The Head, Department of Mathematical Sciences, U.S. Military Academy shall constitute a faculty board to review applications and recommend deserving recipients. The Foundation Board of Governors of the Omar N. Bradley Foundation, acting on behalf of the Chief of Staff of the Army, is the approving authority for fellowship awards. The Custodian of the Omar N. Bradley Foundation will disburse funding directly to the persons selected for fellowship awards. Selection of the Fellows will be made without regard to rank, branch, or affiliation with the USMA Department of Mathematical Sciences. Funds will be granted to those officers who are “actively engaged” in the study of mathematics who have the bestdeveloped plans for conducting significant work, have demonstrated analytic research ability, and have the potential for the fellowship to result in a highquality effort. Officers may reapply annually.
Who May Apply. Active duty officers of any branch of service who are actively engaged in the study of the Mathematical Sciences. Active engagement in the study of Mathematical Sciences includes any activity related to the learning of mathematics, the teaching of mathematics, or the applications of mathematics to a military problem. Proposals should be able to be completed within three years. Officers who have been awarded a fellowship in the past may apply again; however, these applicants should provide details in their new application about the progress they have made on previous awards and how the previously received funding has been used to support their efforts with regard to the awarded proposal.
How To Apply. Interested officers meeting the eligibility requirements specified above should apply to the Secretary of the Faculty Board for the Omar N. Bradley Officer Research Fellowships in Mathematics.
Notes. Whether the results are published or presented, a reference will be made that the effort was funded (either fully or partially) by the Omar Nelson Bradley Fellowships. Recipients should provide a status report to the Head, Department of Mathematical Sciences, U.S. Military Academy, within two years of receipt of funding. The report should provide a summary of progress completed on the study efforts associated with the original proposal. The report should also indicate how the funding supported the study efforts. The report should indicate if the funding was used to support travel, equipment purchases, data purchases, contracted research assistance, or software purchases. If the funding was used to support other types of purchases in support of the study efforts, the recipient should specify how the funding was used. The report should include a revised budget for any remaining funds as well as a revised timeline for any remaining activities associated with the original proposal. Recipients should submit a report of their completed efforts within three years of receipt of funding. These reports will be collected by the Head, Department of Mathematical Sciences, U.S. Military Academy, and forwarded to the Board of Governors of the Omar N. Bradley Foundation.
Selection of the Omar N. Bradley Officer Research Fellowships in Mathematics. The Head, Department of Mathematical Sciences, U.S. Military Academy shall constitute a faculty board to review applications and recommend deserving recipients. The faculty board shall consist of at least four voting faculty members of the USMA Department of Mathematical Sciences. The faculty board will convene in January 2016. The faculty board will forward its recommendations to the Head, Department of Mathematical Sciences by 2 February 2016. The Head, Department of Mathematical Sciences will forward recommendations to the Board of Governors of the Omar N. Bradley Foundation in early to mid February 2016.

Core Mathematics Program
Core mathematics education at USMA includes both acquiring a body of knowledge and developing thought processes judged fundamental to a cadet's understanding of basic ideas in mathematics, science, and engineering. Equally important, this educational process in mathematics affords opportunities for cadets to progress in their development as lifelong learners who are able to formulate intelligent questions and research answers independently and interactively. More information can be found in the Core Math Book.
In the classroom, concepts are applied to representative problems from science, engineering, and the social sciences. These applications develop cadet experience in modeling and provide immediate motivation for developing a sound mathematical foundation for future studies.
There are multiple paths through the core mathematics curriculum for cadets. This picture depicts the three common paths that cadets might take to end with MA206.
There are six primary goals of the core mathematics program (as seen below).
