Mathematics possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty. It can stimulate the most extensive imagination and the deepest insight of the human. The absolute correctness of the proposition can be guaranteed by its proof. It has the longest history of nature sciences. As early as the ancient period, it was developed to advance the improvement of thoughts, sciences and technologies. Therefore, mathematics becomes the ultimate beauty of the universe which attracts many great scientists. In recent times, it plays as the leading role of high modern technology and has been widely used in many applications.

Department of Mathematical Sciences, Tsinghua University has a long history of seventy years. Many famous Chinese mathematicians used to study and work here, e.g., Qing-lai Xiong, Wu-zhi Yang, Luo-geng Hua, Shiing-shen Chern, Bao-lu Xu, Xue-fu Duan, Kang Feng, Zhi-li Xu, Min-de Chen, Zhe-xian Wan and Shi-sun Ding. Among them, Luo-geng Hua and Shiing-shen Chern are also world’s famous mathematicians. For the past few years, the University is accelerating to be a world class University and the Department is also developing rapidly. The Mathematical Sciences center, whose inaugural director is Shing-Tung Yau, has been founded in 2009. And we have also improved in hiring talent researchers, educating excellent students, supporting novel studies and building activity research groups. We will keep on making progress for our bright future.
We welcome everyone to our department.
