About Faculty

The main activities of INSPEM include planning, identifying and implementing research in Theoretical Studies, Applied and Computational Statistics, areas of Computational Sciences and Informatics and Innovation Methods in Education. The institute also serves as two-way channel between it and the public and private agencies through which research products can be channelled and problem requiring mathematical treatment can be received and examined at the institute.

The main objectives of INSPEM are:

To carry out research in all identified areas.

To established critical-masses of researchers in high-end areas of mathematics.

To acquire state-of-the art research facilities.

To be a reference centre in matters pertaining to mathematics.

To publicize information on research products of INSPEM to public and private sectors.

To establish networking with researchers and research institutions from inside and outside of UPM.

Cryptography is a fast developing mathematical field due to its widespread use in information security. Research in this field revolves around mathematical ideas and topics such as number theory, geometric algebra, chaos theory and other related fields. Amongst the main research areas are development of efficient cryptographic algorithms, primarily testing, factorisation of large integers, lattice-based cryptography, filtering methods, elliptic curve cryptography, and discrete log problems . Eventual aims are the development, improvement and implementation of cryptographic protocols that can become standards for communications security.
