  The mathematical challenges facing the twentyfirst century Navy touch a vast number of subdisciplines in mathematics, from the traditional applied math subjects of numerical analysis, engineering mathematics, operations research, and statistics to problems applying discrete math, algebra, and algebraic geometry. 
  Mathematics Track  The Mathematics Track offers more background in theory and foundations of mathematics, with courses in the traditional areas of analysis, linear algebra, complex variables, algebra, topology, geometry, and combinatorics, applications such as cryptography and coding theory, and special topics courses such as differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and mathematical physics. 
  Recent mathematics majors have earned Master degrees through VGEP studies at the George Washington University, George Mason University, and the University of Maryland, while IGEP participants have continued their mathematical studies at MIT, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of Chicago Business School.
