Founded in 1962, the Institute of Mathematical Sciences promotes fundamental research in theoretical physics, mathematics, and theoretical computer science, as well as in many interdisciplinary fields. IMSc hosts a large visitor program and about 100 resident researchers, including Perimeter Distinguished Research Chair Ganapathy Baskaran.
The IMSc-Perimeter partnership aligns with Perimeter’s aim of acting as a hub for a network of theoretical physics and mathematics centres around the world. It follows similar partnerships with the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at Cambridge University, and the International Centre for Theoretical Physics – South American Institute for Fundamental Research, among others.
The initial term of the agreement is one year, with an expectation of renewal on a mutually agreeable basis.
