What is DIAMANT?
DIAMANT is one of the four 'mathematics clusters' in the Netherlands. DIAMANT stands for 'Discrete, Interactive and Algorithmic Mathematics, Algebra and Number Theory.'
The other three clusters are Nonlinear Dynamics of Natural Systems (NDNS+), Genootschap voor Meetkunde en Quantummechanica (GQT), and Stochastics--Theoretical and Applied Research (STAR). All four clusters are funded by NWO-EW.
At present the board of DIAMANT consists of Bart de Smit (UL, chair), Karen Aardal (TUD), Ronald Cramer (UL/CWI), Ben Moonen (RUN) and Tanja Lange (TU/e).
We organise a semi-annual DIAMANT symposium: in the last week of May, and in the last week of November. We contribute to the national mathematics master programme mastermath as well as the research school WONDER.
DIAMANT comprises participants from CWI, Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, Universiteit Leiden, Universiteit van Tilburg, Universiteit Twente, Universiteit Utrecht, Universiteit van Amsterdam and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
This project proposal describes the goals and structure of the first round of DIAMANT, 2005--2010. This document gives an overview of the goals and structure of the second round of DIAMANT, 2011--2013. The cluster has received continued funding for 2013--2015, 2015--2017, 2017-2019.
