Pure Mathematics

Department members conduct a a large variety of subjects in pure mathematics—from number theory and discrete mathematics to probability and analysis. The main areas of pure mathematics at UMass Amherst are listed below. Explore the web links for more information about faculty, seminars and research groups. Note that these groups are not separate or isolated. We believe strongly in the underlying unity of mathematical sciences, and many of us have interests in more than one of these areas. Furthermore, many of these areas are also enriched by interactions with applications.
