Welcome
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 mindbending 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.
Congratulations to Math major Shikhin Sethi '19, who received the Francis L. Town Scientific Prize for his achievement in Mathematics. Shikhin works with Professor Peter Doyle on projects involving topology, algorithms, and probability. He plans to go to graduate school and eventually do research in mathematics or computer science.

We regret that we are unable to host Math Camp this year. We hope to offer this summer enrichment program again in 2019.
FPSAC 2018: July 16–20
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.
Permutation Patterns 2018: July 9–13
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.

The Byrne Scholars Program
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.
Neukom Fellows opportunity
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.
