Missions of DMA

The Department of Mathematics and Applications (DMA) at Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) aims at
- providing top-level education in mathematics,
- carrying mathematical research, which it does both at a national and an international level.

This is why DMA
- gives priority to teaching: every researcher or professor must be involved in the education program through lectures, tutorials, but also organization of seminars and workshops;
- has a national mission by providing each year young teachers and doctors to the French academic system;
- encourages mobility — as a rule, no one can be part of the faculty for more than 10 years;
- develops collaborations with many universities and research centers, all over the country but also abroad;
- creates an interdisciplinary environmement by increasing its relationships with other departments of ENS: computer science, physics, biology.

At last, the DMA hosts the editorial office of the Annales scientifiques de l’ENS, as well as the famous Nicolas Bourbaki group.
