## 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 birdâ€™s wing, to the security of global computer networks. Topology, geometry, prime numbers, probability. Mathematics is full of unsolved problems and mind-bending 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. |
