Upcoming Event

Four Decades of the Einstein Chair Seminar

Tuesday, January 17 — Thursday, January 19, 2023

The Graduate Center's Ph.D. Program in Mathematics is a crossroads for the many research mathematicians working in the City University of New York, as well as a place for doctoral students to gain the background they will need to pursue careers as pure or applied mathematicians. The Graduate Center is the only campus offering a doctoral degree in mathematics and the majority of our faculty have dual appointments at the Graduate Center and at one of four year colleges within the CUNY system.

Research areas include algebraic geometry, algorithms, combinatorics, complex analysis and Teichmuller theory, dynamics, group theory, Lie theory, logic, number theory, probability, Riemannian geometry and analysis, and topology.

Note: The staff of the Mathematics Program Office are working remotely and fully operational while the office is physically closed until further notice.  Use e-mail to contact any of us
