The Faculty of Mathematics was opened in 2008. Since then, it has become a leading place in Russia for attracting researchers in Mathematics and mathematical students. The Faculty has Bachelors, Masters and Ph.D. programs in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics.

Among our faculty members are distinguished researchers, including 14 invited ICM speakers (and 3 speakers of the forthcoming ICM 2022); we have the best concentration in Russia of highly motivated students majoring in mathematics.

There are four international research units of the HSE affiliated with the Faculty of Mathematics: the Laboratory of Algebraic Geometry and its Applications (scientific director: F.
