Inaugurated on December 17, 2017, the Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics at Zhejiang University aims to provide a tranquil and stimulating environment in which mathematicians from all corners of the world can get together to work, think, and exchange ideas.
The Institute has a substantial annual budget provided by Zhejiang University, supplemented by donations and government grants. Surrounded by a lovely forest garden, the institute’s newly-renovated interim building has a usable area of just over 1000 square meters, with a well-equipped lecture hall, a tea room, and individual offices. Planning for a permanent site of the IASM is well underway.
Located in the beautiful city of Hangzhou, Zhejiang University is one of the oldest universities in China. Its Zijingang campus, where the IAS is located, is adjacent to the famous Xixi National Wetland Park – an area of over 4 square miles rich of history and natural beauty.
