The purpose of the Center for Mathematics at Notre Dame is to promote and stimulate mathematical research, to communicate the power, beauty and ubiquity of mathematics, and to provide growth opportunities to students dedicated to mathematics.

We aim at developing and broadly disseminating fundamental and deep mathematical ideas, and encourage collaborative and cross-disciplinary research, both within mathematics and with other disciplines such as Physics, Computer Science, Medicine, Biology, and Biotechnology, among others.

At present, the main activity of the Center consists of organizing summer schools and international conferences. We invite internationally recognized mathematical leaders to Notre Dame to offer summer schools featuring mini-courses aimed at different audiences.  Each year we will organize a summer school directed at undergraduates who consider graduate studies in mathematics, including students from our own SUMR program. Another summer school will target math graduate students, post-docs, and senior researchers interested to learn more about a new, cutting-edge topic.  Following each of these summer schools, the Center will host an international research conference featuring the most current research related to the subject of the mini-courses.

For the future, we envision expanding these schools so that they can last a whole semester or year. Each year will be labeled with a special “Emphasis Year at Notre Dame Topic”, which will feature the most interesting development in mathematical or inter-disciplinary research along with its breakthroughs.  Examples may include the latest advances in math related to cancer research, biomedical technology, or the solution to long-standing famous problems or conjectures.  The most prestigious names and the rising stars in their fields will be able to come together on our Lady’s campus and form strong bonds that may lead to innovative breakthroughs in math and, as a consequence, in other scientific fields.

The Center aims to provide an intellectually stimulating environment to foster interaction between mathematicians at all levels. Furthermore, the Center encourages the participation of underrepresented groups, including women and minority students, consistent with the mission of the University of Notre Dame.
