Chair Ivan YotovDepartment of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh is flourishing

Welcome to the Web page of the Department of Mathematics at University of Pittsburgh. As mentioned in our mission statement the department is committed to excellence in undergraduate and graduate training as well as in research and scholarship in pure and applied mathematics. Our faculty conduct active research in a broad range of areas, from algebra, analysis, and geometry to mathematical biology and mathematical finance, to numerical analysis and scientific computing.

During the academic year we hold a weekly department colloquium and a number of research seminars.

The department actively promotes mathematics to the University and broader community through a variety of activities, including annual Pitt and high school Integration Bees and Summer Math Days.

Please don’t hesitate to contact my office if you have any questions about mathematics or the mathematical sciences.

Last but not least, be sure to visit our new alumni page and keep in touch!

Best, Ivan Yotov
