Mathematics

Dr Pierre Portal is researching the problems of harmonic analysis—a field that is useful for signals, such as images or sounds, and even financial data

The ANU Mathematical Sciences Institute is ranked number one in Australia for maths teaching and research (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2016) and our staff include some of the best mathematicians in Australia.

Mathematics is everywhere in science. More sophisticated and innovative mathematical tools are needed every day in technology and in the community. With over 200 members, PhD students and associates, we are conducting internationally recognised research in a variety of topics ranging from algebraic geometry to computational mathematics, non-linear analysis and stochastics.

We fulfil both a national and international role as a “research institute” in the mathematical sciences, working cooperatively with the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) and a number of international centres.

We offer researchers up-to-date computing facilities, including access to the National Computational Infrastructure supercomputer.
