Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences Key Statistics

CIMS, which is an independent division of NYU under the Faculty of Arts & Science, comprises two departments. These departments are the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Computer Science. It offers several undergraduate, master, and Ph.D. programs including data science, mathematics, computer science, and atmosphere-ocean science.

The research institute has more than 2,000 students, including 1,500 undergraduates and 600 postgraduates. It also has over 80 academic staff members including Abel Prize winner S.R. Srinivasa Varadhan, Satter Prize awardee Lai-Sang Young, and Salem Prize winner Akshay Venkatesh. Besides the two departments, the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences campus also houses the Warren Weaver Hall on Mercer Street and several research facilities sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the United States Department of Energy.

Other Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences key statistics include the Courant Institute Library, which boasts of the country’s most complete mathematics collections. It consists of 54,000 volumes and over 275 journals, not to mention, an extensive database containing thousands of electronic journals related to computer science and mathematics.

Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences Research

Known for its comprehensive research in pure mathematical areas, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences has an index score of 1.84. As part of NYU, the research institute receives major research funding from the NYU Financial Aid, the GSAS MacCracken Support, and several outside organizations.

Although known for its extensive research work in mathematics, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences has also made a name for itself in the fields of computer science, artificial intelligence, and pattern recognition. Its researchers have also attended global research conferences and symposiums including NeurIPS: Neural Information Processing Systems, ICLR: International Conference on Learning Representations, and ICML: International Conference on Machine Learning.

The research institute’s most cited publication is Courant and Hilbert’s (1947), “Methods of mathematical physics,” which has 15,910 citations. This journal paper talks about the Algebra of Linear Transformations and Quadratic Forms, the Calculus Variations, the Linear Integral Equations, and the Calculus of Variations to Eigenvalue Problems.

Courant Institute’s second most popular work is Arjovsky et al.’s (2017): “Wasserstein generative adversarial networks,” which received 6,793 citations. In addition, Courant and Friedrichs (1947): “Supersonic Flow and Shock Waves,” is CIMS’s third most popular publication, with 5,230 citations.

Other Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences research facilities include its dynamic and cutting-edge research centers. These include the Center for Atmosphere-Ocean Science, the Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, and the Center for Data Science (CDS). The CDS research department was built to promote NYU’s objective of developing the country’s top data science training and research projects.
