Description | "The research activity in the department is centered around groups of faculty with common interests in a subfield of mathematics. The main subfields of activity are number theory, algebraic geometry, topology, geometric analysis, probability, and mathematical physics. Each of these subfields has at least one a weekly seminar for the faculty and PhD students in the area. The seminars form one of the main training grounds for the PhD students, and almost without exception, by the beginning of the third year of the PhD program students have chosen a group and are regularly attending the seminars of that group. The groups are fluid and faculty often are regular attentees in more than one of the seminars. There is much communication between members of different groups and as mathematical subfields and individual interests evolve there is a natural flow of faculty between the various groups. " |
