The study of Mathematics at University of Zurich offers a broad education in the foundations of Mathematics. Defining mathematics is an art in itself because it is both concrete and abstract. We come up against mathematics in everything we do: when we make a phone call, drive a car, in the library, at the bank, in a doctor's practice. 


Mathematics is a fascinating network of theories, statements, propositions and methods that are logically combined with one another. 

The challenge lies in analysing this network and discovering new relationships that are significant for the advancement of mathematics itself or their application in science and technology.
