The Initiative for the Theoretical Sciences ( provides a home for theoretical research in the sciences and cuts across a wide range of subjects in its search to find a mathematical description of the world around us.

Programs for Spring 2014 include workshops, seminars, and public events, all of which will be held at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, 365 Fifth Avenue, between 34th and 35th Streets, in Manhattan. We are located within convenient walking distance of several subway lines and buses, as well as Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal.
