The majority of Department of Mathematics research activities is pursued through Research Centers. These include:

A small number of Department members is affiliated with other research centres or has no current affiliation.


The department is organized into eight research/scientific areas:

  • Algebra and Topology
  • Applied Mathematics and Numerical Analysis
  • Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems
  • Geometry
  • Mathematical-Physics
  • Logic and Computation
  • Probability and Statistics
  • Real and Functional Analysis

In particular faculty positions open in one or more of these areas.


The faculty size currently exceeds one hundred making this the largest portuguese university mathematics department.

Seminars, courses and workshopsCalendar

The Department research activities include work and research seminars and workshops grouped in several thematic series. The following series have been active recently:

Other series are available in the seminar archive.


The best method to gauge the global publication output originating from researchers associated to the Department is to access MathSciNet for the institution with code P-TULT. Be aware that you might get some results from Instituto Superior Técnico but not from the Mathematics Department. The link requires a MathSciNet subscription.


The Department made available online Research Reports from 1993 to 2008.
