- Institute of Mathematics and Informatics (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences)
The

**Institute of Mathematics and Informatics**was established in 1947 as Institute of Mathematics at theBulgarian Academy of Sciences . Its name changed to Institute of Mathematics with Computing Centre in 1961, while from 1970 to 1988 the Institute together with the Faculty of Mathematics atSofia University functioned in a unified structure, the Joint Centre ofMathematics andMechanics . The present name was adopted in 1995.The Institute carries out scientific research in the fields of

mathematics andinformatics , as well as their applications toeducation ,science ,business andindustry ,government , etc.Members of the Institute hold teaching positions at a number of

Bulgaria n universities andcollege s, providing also direction toPh.D. andM.S. students. The Institute plays an important role in training gifted pupils, graduates, etc. for participating in major international competitions inmathematics andinformatics . In particular, theBulgaria n team inmathematics has been ranking among the top five atInternational Mathematical Olympiad events in the recent years.**Departments**AlgebraArtificial Intelligence
