The Research Unit Mathematics and Applications (MA) was a research team hosted at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Aveiro.

It was created in 1994 and was working until 2009, when jointly with CEOC started in 2010 a new research center:

CIDMA - Center for Research & Development in Mathematics and Applications

The main goal of main goal of the Research Unit ''Mathematics and Applications'' was to carry out fundamental and applied research in several domains of Mathematics. In 2008 and 2009 the MA team had more than 45 members with PhD and more than 20 members with MSc.

During its existence, the MA contributed in a strong way to the scientific development of young researchers as well as for the preparation of new researchers through post-graduate and advanced education. E.g., in 2008 the MA team concluded the supervision of:
11 MSc students;
7 PhD students.

The MA Research Unit scientific activities were organized in six research groups:
- Algebra and Geometry Group
- Complex and Hypercomplex Analysis Group
- Functional Analysis and Applications Group
- History of Mathematics Group
- Mathematical Systems Theory Group
- Probability and Statistics Group

In order to achieve its goals, the MA promoted activities such as: regular talks, courses and seminars; dissemination of the scientific production of its team through the participation in scientific meetings; international cooperation (by means of visits to foreign countries and invitation of foreign researchers); organization of workshops and congresses; post-graduate and advanced research. In order to increase its contribution to social and economic development, the MA also had an active participation in multidisciplinary projects in cooperation with other research teams.

In the year 2006, the MA team:
-Published more than 100 papers;
-Presented more than 100 communications in conferences;
-Received the visit of more than 50 researchers from outside Portugal;
-Organized (in total or in part) 8 International Conferences, 1 Workshop, and 1 European Intensive Course.

In the year 2007 the MA team published 95 papers in total.

In the last year (2008), the MA team:
-Published 4 Books;
-Published 7 Book Chapters;
-Published 68 Papers in International Journals;
-Published 27 Papers in Conference Proceedings;
-Presented 100 Communications in Conferences;
-Received the visit of 32 Researchers.

12th Annual Workshop on Applications and Generalizations of Complex Analysis
The 12th Workshop on "Applications and Generalizations of Complex Analysis" provides a forum for the discussion and sharing research results related to Complex, Quaternionic and Clifford Analysis (involving Algebra, Geometry, Numerical Analysis, Differential Equations, etc.) while discussing new problems and developments
Workshop on Integer-valued Time Series Modelling (WINTS09)
The Workshop on Integer-valued Time Series Modelling will be held in Aveiro (Portugal) from September 3 to 5, 2009. It features the latest scientific developments in the field of modelling time series of counts and their applications. (http://sites.google.com/site/wints09)
11th European Workshop on Applications and Generalizations of Complex Analysis
This workshop is intended to give an opportunity for discussions between junior and senior researchers in various fields of mathematics related to Complex, Quaternionic and Clifford analysis, like Algebra, Geometry, Numerical Analysis, Differential equations and Special Functions. http://www.mat.uc.pt/~ajplb/11th.htm
14th European Intensive Course on Complex Analysis and Applications to Partial Differential Equations
This Intensive Course is about Riemann-Hilbert methods for orthogonal polynomials and applications on asymptotic analysis of integrable nonlinear partial differential equations, with lecturers Arno Kuijlaars and K.D.T-R McLaughlin. http://www.mat.uc.pt/~ajplb/14.htm
