The Department was created in June 2013 by the merger of the Department of Mathematics (founded in 1977) and the Department of Applied Mathematics (founded in 1999). It is thus simultaneously the oldest and the youngest department of the University of Crete, as well as being now the largest Department in the School of Science and Technology.

 

The Department accepts two incoming streams of undergraduate students (Mathematics, Applied Mathematics).  The Mathematics undergraduate degree programme offers students solid mathematical foundations in calculus, analysis, algebra & geometry, together with a wide choice of electives. The Applied Mathematics programme is tailored to the study of mathematical problems arising in technological fields, natural sciences, business and economics, with modeling, applied analysis and scientific computation as the core disciplines.

 

Research and research training at all levels is characterized by a successful interface between Mathematics and Applied Mathematics as well as with the Research Institutes of FORTH, notably the Institute of Applied and Computational Mathematics  (IACM) in:

  • Analysis of models in physical sciences
  • Computational methods for applied sciences
  • Mathematical modeling of complex physical phenomena
  • Mathematics for Business and Economics

 

The Department is also home to the Archimedes Center for Modeling, Analysis & Computation (ACMAC), an FP7 project-based centre aiming to promote academic excellence in Applied Mathematics.
