# Research

## Centers

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

- Centro de Análise Funcional, Estruturas Lineares e Aplicações
- Centro de Análise Matemática, Geometria e Sistemas Dinâmicos.
- Centro de Matemática Computacional e Estocástica
- Security and Quantum Information Group, a part of the Associate Laboratory IT.

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

## Areas

The department is organized into eight research/scientific areas:

- Algebra and topology
- Differential equations and dynamical systems
- Geometry
- Logic and computation
- Mathematical-physics
- Numerical analysis and applied analysis
- Probability and statistics
- Real and functional analysis

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

## Faculty

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

## Seminars, courses and workshops

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

- Algebra
- Algebras and subspaces of operators
- Analysis, Geometry, and Dynamical Systems
- Applied Mathematics and Numerical Analysis
- CEMAT’s Open Seminar
- Colloquium
- Diagonal
- Functional Analysis and Applications
- Geometria em Lisboa
- Informal Geometry Seminar
- Information Security
- IST Mathematics Winter Lectures
- Logic and Computation
- Mathematics, Statistics and Computation Summer School
- Mathematics Winter School
- Operator Theory, Complex Analysis and Applications
- Partial Differential Equations
- Probability and Statistics
- Quantum Computation and Information
- String Theory
- Summer Lectures in Geometry
- Summer School in String Theory and Holography
- Topological Quantum Field Theory

Other series are available in the seminar archive.

## Publications

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.

## Reports

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