CEMAT (Center for Computational and Stochastic Mathematics) is a research unit of Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, that merges in 2014 the former Center for Applied Mathematics (CEMAT, IST) and Center of Algebra (CAUL, Faculty of Sciences).
The Center is funded by
(Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia), is a member of CIM (International Mathematics Center) and a founding member of the Biomedical Engineering Consortium.
The main purpose of CEMAT is to engage in high quality research and advanced studies in fundamental, computational and stochastic mathematics.

- Algebra and Computing. We plan to deepen the interplay between semigroup theory and universal algebra with other
areas of mathematics, namely groups, logic and theoretical computer science; to explore automate reasoning
and develop computational tools.
- Applied and Numerical Analysis.
Research work on this area gathers analytic, numerical and computational aspects,
and often its integration, to achieve efficient numerical algorithms.
- Mathematical Modeling in Biomedicine.
Research focused on many fundamental issues both from the mathematical and computational viewpoints.
Emphasis will be given to the setup of physiologically accurate mathematical models developed in realistic
geometries reconstructed from in vivo medical images, and on the use of highly integrated and efficient
numerical algorithms to perform the HPC simulations.
- Statistics and Stochastic Processes.
Research focused on several areas of applied statistics and stochastic processes.
It will be carried out in close connection with engineers and economists,
and strong emphasis will be put on producing codes implementing the methods resulting from the research in
widely used software packages like the R statistical package.
