The Mathematical and Computational Sciences at Western are represented by four separate departments: Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistical & Actuarial Sciences. The Department of Mathematics has established research groups in several areas of contemporary mathematics including algebra, analysis and analytic geometry, homotopy theory, and noncommutative geometry.

Upcoming Events

Each week the Department of Mathematics hosts a wide variety of seminars and events. For a comprehensive list of events, please consult our departmental calendar.

The derived category of coherent sheaves on a smooth projective variety is an important object of study in algebraic geometry. One import device relevant for this study is the notion of tilting sheaf. We first show the existence of tilting bundles on some Brauer-Severi schemes, and as an application, we construct tilting bundles on some arithmetic toric varieties.
