The School of Mathematical Sciences has long tradition of excellent teaching, and a supportive environment for students is paired with cutting-edge research across a broad spectrum of mathematics and its applications.
The Department's size -- more than 102 faculties including 38 full professors; 32 associate professors-- permits an unusual range of opportunities for students, as well as a high degree of personal attention. Our students enjoy a close-knit environment with all the resources of a major research university.
Research interests of our faculty include core areas of pure mathematics, information and computational science, and statistics. There are six research centers in the department, focusing on geometry, algebra, modern analysis, applied mathematics, computational science, operational research and control theory, and financial mathematics. The department also has a Jiangsu Provincial Key Laboratory for Numerical Simulationof Large Scale Complex Systems.
Our undergraduate program containsseveral national and provincial key teaching disciplines. We are among the first in Nanjing Normal Universityto offer undergraduate exchange programs with Nanjing University and Chinese Science and Technology University.
At the graduate level, the school is involved in an unusually broad array of activities. The school offers MS and PhD degrees in mathematics and applied mathematics. We also have a national research center for postdoctoral researchers. Each year, we admit about 80 Master students and 16 PhD students. The study areas include number theory, algebra, geometry, function theory, functional analysis, topology, dynamical systems, numerical linear algebra and parallel computing, optimization, numerical solutions for partial differential equations, computational mechanics, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations and nonlinear analysis, graph theory, combinatorics and design, control theory and its applications, actuarial, stochastic processes and their applications in the financial, mathematical statistics and applications.
