Annual Projects and News
Research Groups (* is the leader):

Each member of MIRS belongs to one of the following sub-groups (Algebra, Geometry, and Analysis , only for convenience).
Many faculty have interests that cut across the groups and the fields continue to evolve.
To develop our future research (and to get feeling of unity), we organize Mathematical Colloquim by invited speakers.
See Laboratory Portraits and  Annual Projects and News for further details of our research.
We all welcome to your contact with us for research.
