- Anne Broadbent, who will join the Department next January, has been appointed University Research Chair in Quantum Information Processing. Quantum information revolutionizes the way we communicate and compute. Thanks to quantum phenomena such as entanglement, superposition and interference, ultrafast computations and secure communications become possible. This research aims at ensuring that our information infrastructure remains both functional and secure in the presence of quantum information technologies. On one hand, we deal with the threats that stem from ultrafast quantum computations; on the other hand, we exploit the properties of quantum information in order to provide secure solutions.
- Benoit Collins won the prestigious Takebe prize of the Mathematical Society of Japan (MSJ) for his contribution to mathematics in Japan. The prize is awarded every year to two or three mathematicians who are 35 years old or less. For more information about Professor ブノワ.コリンズ's award, please visit the website of the MSJ
The University of Ottawa has a vibrant Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
As a teaching unit, the department offers a wide range of undergraduate and programs. All honours undergraduate programs in mathematics and statistics are also offered within the .
The M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in mathematics and statistics are administrated by the which includes professors from the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. This cooperation has many advantages for the students enrolled at both universities since it increases the number of available courses and seminars, and gives opportunities for social as well as academic interactions between the students of both universities.
The Department offers a research intensive environment supported by its affiliation to two of the most prestigious mathematical research institutes in Canada; The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences and the Centre de Recherche Mathématique (CRM) de l'Université de Montréal. The research inside the Department covers a wide range of area with strong .
Since many governmental and private research centers, and many governmental agencies, including Statistics Canada, are located in the National Capital Region, there are excellent job opportunities for students graduating from our programs and also rewarding work term placements for those in our cooperative programs.
