Mathematics at ISTA is an open, curious community, active in research that is inspired by both purely mathematical concepts and applications in physics, computer science, and other fields.

The groups on campus have strengths in a variety of areas, including discrete and computational topology and geometry (Edelsbrunner and Wagner), mathematical physics (Erdős, Seiringer), dynamical systems (Kaloshin), stochastic analysis and partial differential equations (Fischer, Maas), algebraic geometry and representation theory (Hausel), combinatorics (Kwan) and number theory (Browning). There are regular seminars and talks, and the mathematics groups work closely with each other as well as with groups in other fields, such as computer science and biology (Barton).

ISTA Mathematics Colloquium

Mark your calendars for the first Wednesday of each month!

The ISTA Mathematics Colloquium is an enriching discussion platform dedicated to fostering scientific exploration in the field of mathematics.

This monthly seminar series brings together accomplished experts who share their latest research and insights, creating a space for exchange of ideas. PhD students and postdocs are especially encouraged to attend!


We are committed to fostering a dynamic scientific community. Our seminars and events series give you the opportunity to explore, engage, and expand your understanding of mathematics.
