    About KIAS School of Mathematics

    Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) was founded in 1996 by Korean Government to promote research excellence in the basic sciences. KIAS provides its members with a highly interactive, supportive, and dynamic research-friendly environment. Currently, KIAS is comprised of approximately 20 regular faculty members and 80 plus postdoctoral research fellows at the School of Mathematics, the School of Physics, and the School of Computational Sciences.

    The great success of modern science is largely attributed to the application of mathematics in the analysis of models arising from natural and social phenomena. The School of Mathematics supports scholarship in a broad range of mathematical sciences including both pure and applied mathematics such as algebra, number theory, geometry, topology, global analysis, mirror symmetry, partial differential equations, etc. The fundamental objective of the School is creating new mathematical knowledge and nurturing young mathematicians by exposing rising talents to the full spectrum of mathematical sciences. Because the most significant mathematical discoveries have often benefited from cross-fertilization of ideas from different mathematical fields, the School maintains research on diverse areas of mathematics.
