Department of Mathematics
Whether fundamental or applied, mathematics can be found everywhere in the world around us. Rigorous knowledge gained through logical reasoning, mathematics is a fundamental research topic in its own right, for which Institut Polytechnique de Paris researchers are internationally recognized. Laying the theoretical foundations required to further knowledge in other associated disciplines, it gives rise to many applications that are closely connected to the problems posed by physics, mechanics, chemistry, biology and health, finance as well as in socio-economic or information technology fields.
Fundamental and applied research in mathematics at the Institut Polytechnique de Paris aims to:
- Further fundamental research in mathematics at the highest international level.
- Develop research in applied mathematics related to physics, mechanics, computer science and economics.
- Explore new methods for modeling, analysis and simulation in order to respond to new societal and industrial issues.
