- University of Copenhagen Institute for Mathematical Sciences
The Department of Mathematical Sciences ( _da. Institut for Matematiske Fag ved Københavns Universitet) is an institute under the Faculty of Science at the
University of Copenhagen.
The department is located in the E building of the
Hans Christian Ørsted Institute, on Universitetsparken 5 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
From the founding of the University of Copenhagen in
1479, mathematicshad been part of the Faculty of Philosophy. In 1850it was moved to the new faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The Institute for Mathematical Sciences was first created in 1934next to the Niels Bohr Institutebuilding, when Carlsberg Foundationdonated money for a building in celebration of the 450th anniversary of the University of Copenhagen in 1929. In 1963the institute moved to its current location.
Many different branches of mathematics are being covered by the fields of interest of different researchers at the institute.
Harald Bohr- the brother of physicist Niels Bohr- is one famous alumni of the department; his research in harmonic analysisand almost periodic functionsin the 1930's laid the foundation for a huge drive in analysis. Most notably in the 1980, the department has been a frontrunner in the research of the more abstract parts of analysis, such as operator algebraand C*-algebra.From that period, researchers related to the department include
Gert Kjærgaard Pedersen
In continuation of this, the department today houses a center for
Of other major research frontiers are
homological algebra, and more recently - grounds have been laid for a boost in the research of algebraic topology.
