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

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.
In honor of her late husband, insurance executive and philanthropist John J. (Jack) Byrne Jr.,
Dorothy Byrne of Etna, N.H., has committed $20 million to help Dartmouth attract and support
the finest math students and professors.
All Dartmouth applicants will be considered for this special scholarship.
The Neukom Fellows program is an interdisciplinary postdoctoral program at Dartmouth that may provide
another means of working with or being mentored by faculty in our department.
We regret that we are unable to host Math Camp this year. We hope to offer this summer enrichment program again in 2019.
