Research Areas
The research activity of our department is well developed with many dynamic and productive research groups. We have full-time academics, a large number of researchers and PhD students and several visiting and post-doc positions.
The Department currently has ten main research groups, though there is collaboration among staff members within and outside their group. These pages provide information on staff and their main research activities.
Other activities can be described through the publications of the Department of Mathematics and the Laboratories.
- Analytic and Algebraic Geometry
- Calculus of Variations and Geometric Measure Theory
- Control Theory

Research centers
CIRM: The "Centro Internazionale per la Ricerca Matematica" conducts seminars and meetings regarding mathematics research. The center also set up a range of activities (Visiting Professors and Visiting Scholars, Postdoc Fellowships, Research in Pairs) with the intention of stimulating the interaction between the mathematical research community of the Trento area and the international mathematical community.
COSBI: a bioinformatic research center operating in the fields of system nutrition, system pharmacology, and ecology.
Indam: Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica "Francesco Severi", local research unit in Trento.
Multimedia Geometry Group: is an interdisciplinary group which aims to study information retrieval exploiting geometrical feature extraction techniques.
matematita: an interuniversitary center of research for the communications and the informal learning of mathematics. Local unity of Trento.
OrientaMAT: research and development of software and online materials to improve the mathematical preparation of new students.
