The Applied Mathematics Laboratory, (AML) is operated by the Department of
Mathematics of Towson University, Towson, Maryland, and directed by Jay Zimmerman.
The Applied Mathematics Laboratory, by agreement with sponsoring organizations,
will undertake research projects of a mathematical nature at the advanced undergraduate
level whose analysis, solution and exposition will require the substantial
involvement of a team of students and faculty members for (usually) an
academic year. The sponsor submits a fee for the research project to
Towson University to cover the costs of services, equipment, and faculty.
The Applied Mathematics Laboratory will form a team of talented undergraduate and
graduate students led by a faculty director from the Mathematics Department and
a co-director with particular interest in the problem posed. This team studies
the problem, and supplies an honest, intensive effort on the part of its best
mathematical talent to study and fully report on the sponsor's project.
Students receive course credit for their participation in an Applied
Mathematics Laboratory Project.
Past sponsors have included Science Application International Corporation (SAIC),
the Baltimore City Fire Department, the Baltimore County Department of
Environmental Protection and Resource Management, the Carroll Area Transit System,
and the National Institute of Justice.
We invite corporations and government
agencies with potential research projects to contact us the address below.
