Since 1986 the Mathematics section at ICTP has played an important role in fostering mathematics research and education in developing countries. Research is carried out in various fields of Mathematics by the permanent staff, postdocs, and graduate students, as well as by scientific visitors from all over the world.

Typically, the section organizes from 5 to 10 focused activities a year involving an average of 100 participants. These activities are the core of the section's activities and are crucial for disseminating current mathematics knowledge of the highest level as widely as possible.

In addition the Mathematics section, like all the other sections at ICTP, participates in the Diploma program. Since 2011 Diploma students can apply to stay on to work on a PhD in Mathematics in a joint program with SISSA.

The Mathematics section also offers opportunities for postdocs and research fellows; click here for latest announcements.

Once a month, the section organises The Basic Notions Seminar Series to broaden the understanding of some mathematical concepts.

ICTP Math Lecture Series on Dynamics of the Geodesic Flow on Surfaces Without Conjugate Points - Lecture 1
Lecture 1: Geometry of surfaces without conjugate points
Abstract: This lecture focuses on the general geometric aspect of surfaces without conjugate points. This includes properties of such surfaces and definition of the ideal boundary of the universal cover. We will also define the geodesic flow in this lecture.
Kindly register in advance for these meetings (you only have to register once to attend all events): https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0sd-igqjouE917PnJKgmidMHmi3lDa58se
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
This lecture is to be considered as part of the ICTP Math Associates Seminars Series, being targeted to a general audience.

ICTP Math Lecture Series on Dynamics of the Geodesic Flow on Surfaces Without Conjugate Points - Lecture 2
Lecture 2: Measure of maximal entropy via Patterson-Sullivan measures
Abstract: : This lecture focuses more on the dynamical aspect of the geodesic flow. We will define the measure of maximal entropy and give its construction via the Patterson-Sullivan measures on the ideal boundary.

ICTP Math Lecture Series on Dynamics of the Geodesic Flow on Surfaces Without Conjugate Points - Lecture 3
Lecture 3: Some statistical properties of the geodesic flow
Abstract: : In this lecture we will prove that the measure of maximal entropy constructed above is unique and therefore ergodic. We will also prove that the geodesic flow is mixing with respect to the measure of maximal entropy.

ICTP Math Lecture Series on Dynamics of the Geodesic Flow on Surfaces Without Conjugate Points - Lectures 4 and 5
Lectures 4 and 5: Counting the closed geodesics
Abstract: In these two lectures we prove a Margulis-type asymptotic estimate for the number of free homotopy classes of closed geodesics. This can be seen as the prime geodesic theorem in this setting of surfaces without conjugate points.

Every year the Mathematics Group offers research opportunities for outstanding mathematicians from developing countries, for short and long-term visits, as well as postdoctoral fellowships, through the Mathematics Research Fellowships programme. A call for postdoctoral fellowships with a starting date of September 2020 is now open. The application deadline is 5 January 2020. Other research and education opportunities in mathematics are available through the ICTP's Postgraduate Diploma Programme as well as its Associateship Scheme.

ICTP is governed by UNESCO, IAEA, and Italy, and is a UNESCO Category 1 Institute
