History of Mathematics ::.
One of the main aims of this recently founded group is to contribute significantly to the work of the UI&D by supporting and promoting creative capacities in the Department that do not identify themselves with only one of the disciplines or that prefer to be integrated in forms of investigation which use other specific methods (for instance, search in libraries or archives, analysis of estates, comparative or biographical studies etc.) The proposed goals and the expected results of the historical research will be used to increase the scientific culture at any level of research, particularly at the post-graduate level. Another aim is to support the realization of commemorative activities (exhibitions, conferences) on a high scientific level which may find resonance inside and outside the Department.

The group runs a seminar on "The History and Heritage of Mathematics".
