## Mathematics

Caltech's mathematics program brings together faculty, researchers, and students who have a breadth of interests and expertise in the use and analysis of numbers, and who are interested in collaborating with colleagues across fields to solve some of the most complicated problems of our time. Members of the mathematics faculty conduct research at the intersection of fields ranging from mathematical physics to geometry and topology. They are renowned for their insights in the areas of algebra and mathematical logic; have won top honors for their work in analysis, number theory, and geometry; and have authored texts about mathematical analysis that are considered foundational to the field.

The department supports roughly 17 faculty, 67 undergraduates, 34 graduate students and 9 postdoctoral scholars and instructors annually.

The mathematics academic program offers opportunities for study at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Both programs are aimed at fostering independent thinking and preparing students for careers in research.
