Our Formula

Mathematics is a major achievement of the human mind, a subject with its own structure and elegance, worthy of pursuit for its own sake. On the other hand, mathematics has always been used to help us understand the world and the society in which we live, and with the development of the computer, applications of the mathematical methods of thought have become even more prominent.

At Beloit, we respect and teach both aspects of mathematics. The structure and intellectual appeal of mathematical ideas is central to our courses and curriculum. We stress the relationship of mathematical thinking to other fields of intellectual and practical endeavor. We emphasize the importance of clear and careful expression to mathematical reasoning; our courses involve practice in writing, giving oral presentations, and working on projects as part of a team.

Integrating by the method of steepest descent, with applications to Feynman’s quantum mechanics

Dr. Paul Stanley
By exploring some techniques of integration, we will evaluate some important expression in physics. This will allow insight into approximations in quantum mechanics and understanding of some of the implication of Feynman’s path integral approach to quantum mechanics.
