Welcome to the Mathematics Department!

Our research specialties are in algebra, analysis, geometry, probability and topology.

There are about thirty-five research faculty members and almost seventy graduate students in the department.

The American Mathematical Society has ranked us in the top group of U.S. research departments in Mathematics.

Six members of the department were named Fellows of the American Mathematical Society in 2013. Three members of the department spoke in the Lie Theory Section of the 2014 International Congress of Mathematics.

We also take great pride in the quality of our outstanding undergraduate teaching as well as our thriving graduate program.

The EUGENE MATH CIRCLE is continuing in the department. It is aimed at elementary, middle and high school students who enjoy math and want to be stretched by challenging problems.
