The strategy targets our aims:
1. To develop new mathematics, to push back the frontiers of our knowledge. To do this at the highest international level, addressing significant fundamental and applied problems.
2. To disseminate the results of our researchers and those of others through our publications in scholarly journals and books, through public lectures and participation in conferences.
3. To transmit mathematical knowledge and mathematical skills to a new generation. Here we address ourselves both to future researchers in mathematics proper as well as future users of mathematics in science, industry, commerce, technology, finance and other areas.
The strategy is implemented using a tried and tested methodology. Briefly, this involves:
1. Hiring and maintaining a permanent nucleus of staff whose mathematical education is broad, deep, and rigorous, and who engage in teaching and research.
2. Selection of interesting and challenging problems.
3. Study, discussion and thought, leading to solution of problems.
4. Publication of articles, monographs and texts.
5. Training, supervision, and collaboration with post-doctoral fellows and students.
6. Provision of infrastructure such as library resources, communication tools, and computers.
7. A system of graduate courses.
8. Organisation of conferences and participation in them.
