Department of Mathematics



ETH-ITS Institute for Theoretical Studies


The Department of Mathematics of the ETH Zurich (D-MATH) conducts research at the highest level in most areas of pure and applied mathematics with a long history of excellence. It is structured in a number of independent professorships and three institutes: Seminar for Applied Mathematics (SAM), Seminar for Statistics (SfS), Institute for Operations Research (IFOR).

The D-MATH also benefits from the activities offered by the Forschungsinstitut für Mathematik (FIM) as well as the Institute for Theoretical Studies (ETH-ITS).

The D-MATH is responsible for the education and teaching of all mathematical courses in all departments of the ETH Zurich. In the areas of mathematics, D-MATH offers courses of study at the Bachelor, Master and doctoral level. Its Graduate School is organized jointly with the Mathematics Institute of the University of Zurich.
