Research areas at Mathematical Sciences

Researchers and teachers at Mathematical Sciences belong to one of three departments, Analysis and Probability Theory, Algebra and Geometry,  or Applied Mathematics and Statistics.

In their daily work, the researchers take part in  one or more of the research areas presented here.

Algebraic geometry and number theory

The research covers a diverse selection of topics in algebraic geometry and number theory.

Artificial intelligence at Mathematical Sciences

The range of new technologies in AI (artificial intelligence) bring both technical and societal challenges, many of which are mathematical in nature

Computational mathematics

We teach and perform research on the design, analysis, implementation and application of numerical methods for the solution of ordinary and partial differential equations.

Biomathematics and biostatistics

In the area of biomathematics and biostatistics researchers work on developing mathematical and statistical models and methods addressing various biological phenomena.

Harmonic analysis and functional analysis

We study a wide range of problems in classical and modern analysis. 

Complex analysis of several variables

Complex analysis in several variables is a wide field of research; it is a branch of analysis but with strong connections to algebra and geometry.

Mathematical physics

We are interested in mathematical problems inspired by physics.

Mathematical optimization

Our research and teaching include mathematical theory and solution methods for various applications of optimization.

Mathematical statistics

The group conducts research developing stochastic models and statistical methods.

Probability theory

The probability group conducts research in theoretical probability.

The teaching and learning of mathematics

The group conducts research in different aspects of the teaching and learning of mathematics and mathematics education.
