Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis

Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis

The five main research areas of the Department are: algebra and discrete mathematics; analysis; applied mathematics and mechanics; stochastics and statistics; systems analysis and operations research. We offer major and minor studies at the bachelor's and master's level and provide doctoral research training. Our graduates have been recruited by universities, research institutes, governmental agencies as well as companies in the financial, energy and transportation sectors, for instance.

Professor wins international prize for research on decision-making

23. October 2019
Professor Raimo P.  Hämäläinen has been awarded the 2019
Frank P. Ramsey Medal by the Decision Analysis Society (DAS) of INFORMS, the leading international association for professionals in operations research and analytics. The Ramsey medal is the highest award that the DAS can bestow upon its members, and recognizes the breadth and impact of professor Hämäläinen’s career. His research covers models for decision making ranging from negotiation support to pilot decision making and participatory multi-criteria methods for environmental policy.  He has collaborated for long with the Finnish Air Force and the Finnish Environment Agency.  As an emeritus he is actively continuing research in Aalto and in collaboration with international scholars.
