Department of Mathematics (MAI)

Mathematics plays a fundamental role in modern science and technology, but is also a scientific discipline.

The Department of Mathematics (MAI) is an department with about 100 employees and 4 divisions.

Research and teaching in the Department ranges over a wide spectrum from pure mathematics and scientifically generated approaches to applications within the fields of technology, science, economics, and mathematics education.

Differential Equations and Analysis on Metric Spaces

Differential equations describe many real-world phenomena but can rarely be solved exactly. We therefore study properties of their solutions in other ways, in very general situations, similarly to creating an identikit of an unknown criminal.

Modern Multivariate Statistical Analysis

Nowadays there is a great need to analyse complex high-dimensional data. Modern theories must be developed through the knowledge of the classical methods of multivariate statistics.
