Mathematics at ICTP

ICTP’s MATH section explores various key areas of mathematics
Mathematics at ICTP

ICTP is widely regarded as an extraordinary environment for advancing knowledge in the physical and mathematical sciences, with a permanent faculty of distinguished scientists who conduct rigorous world-class, curiosity-driven research in frontier and interdisciplinary topics ranging from string theory, cosmology, and black holes to quantum computing, climate science, and quantitative life sciences.

As science evolves to investigate new problems and answer new questions, so has the research carried out at ICTP. Founded by theoretical particle physicist and Nobel Prize Laureate Abdus Salam, over time ICTP has evolved to encompass a wide range of research areas in physics, including applications of science technology.

The MATH section explores topics in fundamental mathematics, such as algebraic geometry; harmonic analysis and partial differential equations; dynamical systems and ergodic theory; differential geometry, topology and geometric analysis, with a focus on general relativity and condensed matter physics; and both algebraic and analytic number theories. Recently, the section has opened up to the exploration of new topics, such as machine learning in mathematics.

ICTP is happy to release a new video featuring ICTP Senior Research Scientist Claudio Arezzo, Head of the MATH section, as he presents the topics that researchers in the section explore. 

During the whole week of 13 May ICTP will be sharing content related to the MATH section on its website and on social media. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, X and Linkedin to learn more about ICTP’s research sections and explore the fascinating science done at ICTP.
