The UoI Department of Mathematics is the second most ancient Department at the University of Ioannina (foundation year: 1966). It has been located in its own building at the campus since 1989.
At the dawn of their development, mathematics were primarily a set of empirical rules for performing equations; nowadays, mathematics are an integral part of our lives, making a dynamic entrance into every modern scientific field at the speed of lightning.
Mathematical Science is mostly about methods of proof, searching and describing mathematical concepts and laws that are necessary in describing modern reality. Mathematics is a widely studied field, thanks to its inherent beauty, and is considered an essential part of human culture. Some mathematicians view their science as artists, while others work to attribute such a conceptual accuracy to the meaning of words, to ensure ultimate causality of reasoning and strict mathematization of conclusions. The mechanistic generation of results is just a part of what a mathematician needs to learn. First and foremost, anyone who becomes a mathematician learns the internal causality of theory to get acquainted both with where and why they go, and where and how they start.
Compulsory minimum period of study: eight (8) semesters.
