View of Ewha Womans University


Mathematics is the language of natural science, which is essential for human's understanding of natural phenomena. Mathematics is clear, rigorous, and beautiful. Pure mathematics comprises algebra which studies rigid structures such as number systems, analysis which studies quantitative investigations, and geometry which studies the structure of spaces. Applied mathematics includes cryptography, image processing, numerical analysis, optimization, as well as artificial intelligence, and addresses the real world problems that connect mathematics to natural science, engineering, economics and sociology. Department of Mathematics at Ewha Womans University is one of the few mathematics departments in Korea in which pure mathematics and applied mathematics are well balanced. Our department possesses outstanding capability and performance both in research and education.
