1. Australian National University - Physical and Mathematical SciencesOur focus is on outstanding science research and teaching. Class sizes are smaller than in other leading Australian universities and the quality of teaching is further enhanced by the strong synergies with our world-class research program. Most of our teaching staff are involved in research, and are committed to assisting you learn science through discovery.
3. Ecole Polytechnique - Departement de Mathematiques Les mathematiques constituent a la fois une science tres moderne et une science tres ancienne : on a ecrit autant de mathematiques durant les 30 dernieres annees que pendant les 25 siecles qui ont precede. C'est en outre une science entretenant des relations fortes, et de nature tres variee, avec les autres disciplines. Les mathematiques contemporaines jouent un role croissant dans le developpement de la science et des technologies.
Les enseignements proposes par le departement de mathematiques sont tres diversifies. En seconde et troisieme annee, ils permettent aux eleves, selon leurs gouts ou leur plan de carriere, de choisir les themes mathematiques qu'ils souhaitent aborder, et le degre d'approfondissement avec lequel ils seront traites.
4. Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne - School of Basic Sciences - Mathematics Mathematics has an essential role to play at the EPFL because of the range of application of its ideas and methods, which is leading to an increasing use of mathematical models by scientists and engineers.
The mathematical fields of potential interest at EPFL are diverse, thus underlining the need to maintain strong research groups across the range of fundamental and applicable mathematics; the resulting interactions can stimulate fundamental and applied mathematical research, as well as being of direct benefit to other domains.
Mathematics underwent a profound change in 2003 on the transfer of UNIL basic sciences to the EPFL. While the separation between pure math (UNIL) and applied math (EPFL) was not absolute (as pure mathematicians had been hired at the EPFL in the 30 years since its federalization), the transfer has injected a much stronger fundamental component as well as a mandate to continue to develop research and teaching in pure mathematics.
5. Harvard Mathematics DepartmentThe mathematics department is located on the floors 2-5 in the Science center. A web camera from the 4'th floor as well as from the top allow you to check the local weather. Information how to reach the department is here. During the semesters, there is tea at 4 o'clock in the Math common room. On Fridays, there is usually "wine and cheese" available. (The name does not exclude that there is also "beer" and nonalcoholic drinks to be found there).
Mathematics research is done in various research areas The junior faculty home pages, the visitor interests page, or the graduate student home pages contain more links. Check also the dissertation titles, senior thesis titles, mathematics seminar archive, the faculty colloquium or regular conferences like the CDM conference, the JDG conference or a topology conference, the conference archive or research programs like the eigenvarieties program 2006. Also the seminar talk archive, the undergraduate math colloquium can give clues about activities. A good starting point on the web is also the MathSciNet search for "Harvard Mathematics" at AMS or a Google scholar search for "Harvard Mathematics".
6. Kyoto University - Graduate School of Science - Faculty of Science - Division of Mathematics and Mathematical Analysis Mathematics aims to clarify the laws governing number, figures, and quantities. Mathematics has built a solid system in its long history, and countless new problems are arising from within mathematics itself and from the influence of other sciences such as physics, biology, and economics among others, and new theories are being created one after another. In addition, due to the universal characteristics of mathematics, it has forged connections with various fields including information science and economics, as well as the natural sciences.
The Department of Mathematics has produced numerous highly recognized mathematicians among its graduates including two Fields Medalists, Dr. Heisuke Hironaka and Dr. Shigefumi Mori. On the basis of this tradition, the Department of Mathematics has continually led the world with respect to research while making the best use of the "Academic traditions of freedom" of Kyoto University.
In graduate education we are achieving tremendous results, grooming the next generation of researchers who will lead the world in research study. In addition, many of our graduates have played an active part in society as well as being researchers of mathematics. Since the inception of the policy to particularly emphasize the graduate school, we have worked to foster "a human resource to play an energetic role in society with advanced expertise in mathematics" including that of actuary, through the establishment of a cooperative adjunct course of Actuarial Mathematics. Moreover, it is our aim to produce excellent junior and senior high school teachers of mathematics.
7. Oklahoma State University - Department of Mathematics The Mathematics Department at Oklahoma State University offers degrees from the bachelors through the doctorate. There are 32 tenured/tenure-track faculty in the department with research interests in several subfields of mathematics, including number theory, Lie groups and representation theory, topology, applied mathematics, algebraic geometry, analysis and mathematics education. The faculty maintain active research programs, publish regularly, and give presentations both nationally and internationally. Many of the faculty members have obtained research grants and awards from the National Science Foundation and other sources. Currently two faculty have Humboldt fellowships to pursue research in Germany.
Undergraduate majors can customize their studies under tracks for pure mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematics for secondary education or financial mathematics. Currently we have about 50 students who have declared mathematics as their first major. Many secondary education majors in the College of Education who plan to teach mathematics have a second major in mathematics. Students in physics and engineering often choose mathematics for a minor.Graduates work in industry, teach or go into graduate studies.
10. UCL - Department of MathematicsThe Mathematics Department is situated at the corner of Gower Place and Gordon Street on the main College site. It occupies floors 5-8 above the Students' Union and consists of lecture rooms, lecturers' offices and the departmental office. There is also a student common room and a quiet room with a small student library.
The Mathematics Department at UCL is an internationally renowned department within one of the world's most prestigious universities. It has a research rating in the official UK league tables comparable with that of Oxford and Cambridge.
The department's reputation dates from 1826 when it was one of the founding departments of UCL and as such it is the third oldest mathematics department in England. The first Professor of Mathematics was Augustus De Morgan who is famous for his laws of sets. It was he who posed the famous 'Four Colour Problem' when he was quoted as saying, 'A student of mine asked me today to give him a reason for the fact which I did not know to be a fact - and do not yet. He says that if a figure be anyhow divided and the compartments differently coloured so that figures with any portion of common boundary line are differently coloured, four colours are wanted, but no more.' This problem eluded the efforts of mathematicians for over a hundred years and was eventually proved using 1,200 hours of computer time!
