European Network in Geometry,
Mathematical Physics and Applications

Enigma is a Marie Curie Research Training Network, supported by the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6)

Contract number : MRTN-CT-2004-5652

Geometry traditionally plays a central role in the mathematical formalism of physics. The relationships between geometry and mathematical physics received a great impetus from the discovery of the integrability phenomenon. For example: European scientists, so far scattered all over Europe, play a leading role in this research. The project aims to create a fertile research and training environement for scientists working in the fields of Geometry, Mathematical Physics, and Applications to Physics, within a European Network on Integrability, Geometry, Matrix models and Applied mathematics.

The network comprises 10 partner nodes from 7 European Countries:
  1. Italy Flag SISSA (*) Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati: Mathematical Physics Sector
  2. Switzerland Flag ETH Zurich Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich: Department of Mathematics
  3. UK Flag UOXF.BK The Chancellor, Masters and Scholars of the University of Oxford: Mathematical Institute
  4. France Flag UPMC Université Pierre et Marie Curie: Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et des Hautes Energies (CNRS-UMR 7589)
  5. Belgium Flag UCL Université Catholique de Louvain: Mathematic Department
  6. Sweden Flag KTH Kungliga Tekniska Hogskolan: KTH Mathematics
  7. UK Flag Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine: Mathematics Department
  8. France Flag ENS École Normale Supérieure: Department de Mathématique Pure et Appliqueé (CNRS-UMR 8553)
  9. UK Flag LU Loughborough University: Department of Mathematical Sciences
  10. Germany Flag TU Berlin Technische Universitat Berlin: Mathematisches Institut, Fakultaet 2
(*): Coordinating Institution

Active collaboration from other working groups and individuals is expected throughout the network's activity, which will last 48 months starting from
January, 1st 2005
