Mathematics has an essential role to play at the EPFL because of the application range of its ideas and methods, which is leading to increasing uses of mathematical models by scientists and engineers. The mathematical fields of potential interest at EPFL are diverse, thus underlining the need to maintain strong research groups across the range of fundamental and applicable mathematics; the resulting interactions can stimulate fundamental and applied mathematical research, as well as being of direct benefit to other domains.
