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 these ideas.

We are located in Kemeny Hall. Please come visit.

FPSAC 2018

This summer the Math Department hosted the 30th International Conference on Formal Power Series and Algebraic Combinatorics. Over 230 participants from 25 different countries came to Hanover for a week full of lectures, two poster sessions, a local excursion, and a lobster banquet. Sergi Elizalde, chair of the organizing committee, would like to thank Tracy Moloney and Amy Potter for their invaluable help with the conference.
