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.

Abstract:
In this talk I will discuss the notions of an optimal symplectic connection and stability of fibrations. The former is a PDE for a canonical choice of fibrewise constant scalar curvature Kähler (cscK) metric, for a fibration whose fibres admit cscK metrics. The latter is a notion of algebro-geometric stability for such fibrations. The goal of the talk is to explain what these notions are, partly in preparation for Michael Hallam's talk the following week. I aim to explain how the notions arose, and how they specialise to the Hermite-Einstein equation and slope stability, respectively, for the underlying vector bundle, when the fibration is the projectivisation of a vector bundle. I will survey some of the results known about these notions, and how they are related.
This is joint work with Ruadhaí Dervan.

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
