What is DIAMANT?
DIAMANT is one of the four ‘mathematics clusters’ in the Netherlands. DIAMANT stands for ‘Discrete, Interactive and Algorithmic Mathematics, Algebra and Number Theory.’
The other three clusters are Nonlinear Dynamics of Natural Systems (NDNS+), Genootschap voor Meetkunde en Quantummechanica (GQT), and Stochastics–Theoretical and Applied Research (STAR). All four clusters are funded by NWO.
At present the board of DIAMANT consists of Robin de Jong (UL), Valentijn Karemaker (UU), Frits Spieksma (TU/e, chair) and Marc Stevens (CWI).
We organise a semi-annual DIAMANT symposium: one directly following upon the NMC, and one in the last week of November.
DIAMANT is actively involved in Master’s and PhD courses in mathematics throughout the Netherlands. Course descriptions of all national courses can be found on the Mastermath webpage. Members of DIAMANT are also involved in the courses of LNMB, the national OR network.
