## Presentation of the laboratory

The Department of Mathematics of the University of Savoie (LAMA) has been set up during the last 15 years around three research teams:

- EDPs
^{2}(Partial Differential Equations : Deterministic and Probabilistic studies), - Geometry,
- LIMD (Logic Informatics and Discrete Mathematics).

Such a variety of research items in the same department expresses the unity of mathematics in its three components: *pures mathematics*, *applied mathematics* and *mathematics and computer science*.
Our common denominator is the quality of fundamental research, and also the interest in applications. This means applications in other sciences (geophysics, physics, biology, mechanics, computer sciences) or in other domains of mathematics (geometry applied in control theory...) or even in pedagogy. This shows the *openings of mathematics* towards the outside scientific world and our constant efforts to promote interdisciplinary researches.
