Math relevant to Nanotechnology

  1. Apr 3, 2013 #1
    I'm a student at UIUC and am wondering what sort of math subjects (or courses if you happen to go here) would be relevant to the field of nanotechnology.

    You need mathematics in all fields of science and engineering, a vague answer to a vague question.

    Nano-whatever is typically a buzzword, as you could be talking about chemistry, physics or electrical engineering, and each of those disciplines has a different approach to the Nano-stuff, some sub-fields might require specialized mathematical frameworks while others can be purely experimental with little or no mathematics.

    In terms of courses, you don't need any special courses at the basic phase of your study (assuming you are doing a physics, chemistry or some relevant discipline)
