# Applied Math

Applied mathematics at the Stanford Department of Mathematics focuses, very broadly, on the areas of scientific computing, stochastic modeling, and applied analysis. Some of the more specific areas of interest are, again broadly, signal processing, compressed sensing, imaging, fast numerical algorithms, and mathematical analysis of the physical phenomena in random media. Much of the applied mathematics at Stanford happens outside of the Mathematics Department, at places such as the Statistics Department, the Institute for Computational Mathematics and Engineering, the Center for Turbulence Research, and various other science and engineering departments. The connection between “theoretical applied mathematics” and “engineering applied mathematics” is what keeps the life of the applied mathematics group vibrant.
