where tomorrow’s science begins today


We have research groups in the following areas of Mathematics:

  1. Number Theory, Finite Group Theory, Linear Algebraic Groups, Lie Algebras, Representation Theory, K-Theory, Algebraic Geometry
  2. Knot Theory, Low Dimensional Topology, Real Algebraic Geometry
  3. Cryptography, Combinatorics, Algorithms, Statistical Designs, Software Testing
  4. Mathematical Physics, Relativity, Ricci flow, String theory, Mathematical Biology, Nonlinear Dynamical Systems, Multiscale Methods, Theoretical Neuroscience, Cardiac Physiology and Diabetes.

We intend to add the following disciplines : Complex / Functional / Harmonic Analysis, Operator Theory, Probability and Statistics, Differential Equations, Differential Geometry, Game Theory, Computer Science subjects etc.


Seminars: We have regular seminars in Mathematics. Seminars range from elementary exposition on a topic (intended to undergraduate students) to research level topics. Please see  http://www.iiserpune.ac.in/links/seminars for regular updates about seminars.

Workshops / Symopsia / Conferences:

We organise a workshop for students every year. The workshop is intended to expose undergraduate students to various areas of Mathematics.

1.  Summer Workshop in Mathematics 2010

2.  Summer workshop in Mathematics 2009

We have organised workshops in our research areas.

1. Algebra Symposium
2. Workshop on Quantitative Analysis and Modelling in animal Sciences (QAMAS) and National Symposium on Theoretical and Mathematical Biology, October 2009, Yashada, Pune.
3. Classification of Algebraic groups
