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.

Advances in computer science have shown that computing is no longer limited to numerical types. More general structures are now more commonly used for information manipulation and computing. In addition, different logical systems and general ideas of computability are currently being explored. These developments overlap with areas of pure mathematics, theoretical computer science and theoretical physics. Applications include symbolic and graphics programming, artificial intelligence, new programming languages, and others. Current research interests include automata theory, quantum computing, computer algebra programming and applications.
