Abstract

What is mathematics, if not the most practical art? A precise formalism for abstract thinking and the most powerful language to gain insight into nature’s phenomena. Oftentimes the most playful scholars gravitate to its immaterial beauty. It serves as a rigorous backbone supporting and connecting all kinds of scientific disciplines. Foundational mathematical research at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) embraces exactly these qualities. It is defined by a strictly curiosity-driven approach, the multidisciplinarity in the Institute’s DNA, and the scientific excellence of its international faculty. From discrete/ computational topology over number theory to mathematical physics and analysis, eleven groups make up a selected, successful, and fast-growing faculty.
