Welcome Message from department chair Robert Perlis

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics at Louisiana State University.  I hope this website provides the information you're  seeking, and also conveys the excitement of learning and discovering mathematics at LSU. 

Our department has maintained Foundations of Excellence status from the beginning of the program. 

Our Vertically Integrated Research courses engage teams of undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and professors in cutting edge research.

Whether you are someone taking one of our courses as a requirement for your non-math major, or you are a math major supported by a Chancellor's Future Leaders in Research scholarship, you will find our instructors friendly, available, and helpful.  

We  presently have 187 math majors, 117 math minors, over 90 graduate students, six postdoctoral researchers, and fifty professorial faculty, working in nearly every field of mathematics. 

Our faculty and graduate and undergraduate students are supported by many state and federal grants, including an NSF VIGRE grant, an NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates grant, an NSF G K-12 grant, a US Department of Education GAANN grant, and LA Board of Regents grants funding several Board of Regents Graduate Fellowships.

I wish you happy browsing!  Questions and comments are welcome via "contact us" in the "About" link at the top of most of our site pages.
