Founded in 1938, the Hunan Normal University is located at Changsha, a beautiful and historical city in the Central South China. In 1996, our university was listed in the national “211 Project”. Under a persistent development of nearly 80 years, it has grown to a comprehensive university with a full range of disciplines, a strong and active faculty group, as well as a characteristic teacher training system. Currently, we have 6 key disciplines of the national 12th Five-Year Plan, 9 key disciplines of the “211 Project”, 17 First-level Disciplines for Doctorate ranting, and 18 postdoctoral research stations. Our faculty members include many distinguished scholars such as members of the Chinese Academy of Science, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, “Thousand Talents Program”, and “Yangtze River Scholars Program”.

About the college
The mathematics subject was founded in 1938 as one of the seven initial disciplines of the National Normal College, a predecessor of the Hunan Normal University. With a long-term effort, we have developed a characteristic subject including fundamental mathematics, computational mathematics, and applied mathematics as its main research areas; combinatorics and optimization, and probability and statistics as its secondary directions. Currently we have six research areas: Analysis, Algebra and Geometry, Scientific Computation, Differential Equations and Dynamic Systems, Combinatorics and Optimization, Probability and Statistics.

We established the first Pure Mathematics Doctoral Program in Hunan Province in 2000, a Research Station for Post-doctoral Fellows in Mathematics in 2001, and the first Primary Discipline Doctoral Program in Hunan Province in 2005. In 2009, we were authorized to establish the Key Laboratory of Performance Computing and Stochastic Information Processing co-sponsored by Hunan Province and the Ministry of Education. Our subject is a key discipline of the national “211 Project” and the Provincial 12th Five-Year Plan, and our pure mathematics branch was rated as one of the cultivation key disciplines of the national 11th Five-Year Plan.
