The scope of theoretical and mathematical studies in the natural and engineering sciences is witnessing a rapid, almost breathtaking expansion. Scholars specializing in the use of theoretical, mathematical, and computational methods of research are poised to attack a host of important scientific problems of unprecedented complexity and trans-disciplinary range.

The Center for Theoretical and Mathematical Science at Duke addresses these opportunities for theoretical collaboration by building an open community of scholars practicing scientific research of a predominantly theoretical and mathematical nature who are interested in applying their skills beyond the traditional confines of their discipline and/or in collaborating with scientists from other disciplines. The Center provides a venue for Duke faculty and students to learn about progress in the theoretical and mathematical sciences through Lectures (“Adventures in Theory”), hosting expert visitors, and by sponsoring focused workshops on trans-disciplinary topics.
