Message from the Director

New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences is a leading center for research and education in mathematics and computer science. For seventy-five years, we have contributed to U.S. and international science and engineering by promoting an integrated view of mathematics and computation.

The Courant Institute has played a central role in the development of applied mathematics, analysis, and computer science. Our faculty has received numerous national and international awards in recognition of their extraordinary research accomplishments. We are equally proud of our former students and postdoctoral associates who now provide leadership at universities, government laboratories, and private industry throughout the world.
