The Institute of Geometry and Physics is devoted to advance the understanding of mathematics and its interface with theoretical physics, to nurture the next generation of original mathematicians and ultimately to build a top-notch institution. We thus endeavor to provide a quiet, comfortable and inspiring environment, where talented researchers in mathematics and related fields from all over the world are invited to visit, to work and thrive; and where academic freedom, diligence and originality are promoted and valued. The institute provides strong funding for our faculty research including support for doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers.
