About the department

Chair: Professor Anna Melnikov


The Department of Mathematics at the University of Haifa was founded in the mid 70’s. Today it is one of the seven mathematics departments in Israeli Universities. The faculty is engaged in world-class research in both pure and applied Mathematics. The research interests of our faculty include algebra, applied mathematics, combinatorics, differential equations, functional analysis, geometry and topology, logic, and theoretical computer science. The Center for Computational Mathematics and Scientific Computing (CMSC) was founded at the department in 2001. Since then it supports a large variety of research activities, conferences, special lecture series, workshops, etc.

The department offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs, both in mathematics and in mathematics and computer science. Undergraduate students are offered also double major programs with other departments. In addition, the department provides courses in Mathematics for students in other university departments.
