Sobolev Institute of Mathematics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences is located in Novosibirsk Akademgorodok.
The list of personnel of the Institute contains about 400 research workers. Data Base of IM SB RAS staff can be seen here.

The Institute was foundered in 1957 by Academician Sergey Sobolev.
At present the Institute is directed by Corresponding member of RAS, Professor, Doctor of Sciences (Physics and Mathematics) Sergey Goncharov.

The members of the Institute carry on fundamental investigations in mathematics, mathematical physics, and informatics in the following main directions:

  •  algebra, theory of numbers and mathematical logic;
  •  geometry and topology;
  •  calculas, differential equations and mathematical physics;
  •  probability and mathematical statistics;
  •  numerical mathematics;
  •  mathematical modeling and methods of applied mathematics;
