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), Frits Spieksma (TU/e) and Marc Stevens (CWI). The research manager is Robin de Jong (UL).
We organise a semi-annual DIAMANT symposium: one directly following upon the NMC, and one in the last week of November.
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.

Call for PhD project proposals4-11-2019
NWO has issued a cluster-wide call for PhD project proposals. Researchers can apply if they are employed (i.e., hold a salaried position) at a Dutch university or a research institute recognised by NWO, and also have an appointment period for at least the duration of the application procedure and the entire duration of the research for which the grant is being applied for.
ERC Starting Grant for Jesper Nederlof4-11-2019
Jesper Nederlof (TU/e) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of almost 1.5 ME. Nederlof will design faster algorithms for hard computational problems in computer science. The grant provides the researcher with the opportunity to further elaborate his own ideas during a period of five years.
Full professor position in Discrete Mathematics in Delft1-11-2018
Delft Institute of Applied mathematics, Delft University of Technology, seeks a full Professor in the field of Discrete Mathematics. A description of the position can be found here. The deadline for applications is January 15, 2019.
ERC Starting grant for Daniel Dadush26-9-2018
Daniel Dadush (CWI) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1.5 ME for his proposal ‘Towards a Quantitative Theory of Integer Programming’. With this grant, Dadush aims to revolutionize the understanding of integer programming (IP), the most popular method used today for finding optimal solutions to real-world optimization problems.
