Mathematics is an amazing and beautiful intellectual creation, one
of the human race's deepest endeavors. The world around us, and the
future world we are creating, is woven through with mathematics — from
the symmetry groups of Navajo weavings, to the airflow around a
flapping bird’s wing, to the security of global computer
networks. Topology, geometry, prime numbers, probability. Mathematics
is full of unsolved problems and mind-bending concepts and the Mathematics
Department at Dartmouth is a place to learn about and investigate

|Our graduate students have many talents. Everett Sullivan won a Dartmouth College Libary Book Arts Prize this year, receiving an Honorable Mention in Letterpress Printing. From left are Everett, Tim Dwyer, and Seth Harris.
We regret that we are unable to host Math Camp this year. We hope to offer this summer enrichment program again in 2019.
Dartmouth will be hosting the 30th International Conference on Formal Power Series and Algebraic Combinatorics. With about 250 participants from around the world each year, FPSAC is the most important conference series in algebraic and enumerative combinatorics.
Dartmouth will be hosting the 16th International Conference on Permutation Patterns. This annual conference is centered around the study of patterns in permutations and other combinatorial objects.
