The Faculty was organized as the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics in
1918.
From the very first years, it had brilliant scholars as its faculty members,
who represented the leading mathematical schools of that time. Soon after
its organization, Professor N. M. Krylov, the representative of Petersburg
school of mathematicians, gave the report to the Council of Tavricheskiy
University with suggestion to organize at the Faculty Mathematical Study
Room, which was opened in January 1919. A large amount of work was done
by the Study Room in 1919, since February till November. In 19171920s,
N.M.Krylov was the Head of the Department of Mathematics, Mathematical
Study Room, and the Editor of The Mathematical Study Room Records.
In 19191925, another representative of Petersburg school of mathematicians,
Professor N.S. Koshliakov, later the Professor of Leningrad University,
Corresponding Member of the USSR Academy of Science and Member of London
Mathematical Society. In 19171921 a famous mathematician Professor M.A.Tikhomandritskiy
worked at the Tavricheskiy University.
During the past years, Assistant Professors B..A. Manson (Dpt. of Mathematical
Analysis), V.N. Skrydlov (Dpt. of Geometry), Professors A.V. Kuzhel (Dpt.
of Algebra and Theory of Numbers). S.I. Cherskiy ( Dpt. of Differential
and Integral Equations) were the heads of departments who fruitfully maintain
pedagogical and scientific activity at the Faculty.
In due time the Faculty was divided into two  Mathematical and Physical.
Since 2000, it has become the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics.
This choice was influenced by growing importance of applied and theoretical
mathematical researches in the sphere of theory of information, theory
of calculations, theory of algorithms, theory of programming, and growing
evaluation of teaching correspondent disciplines.
Today the Faculty is a fully developed University division with its specific
traditions, academic schools and education techniques. These achievements
are connected, first of all, with powerful teaching staff: 6 professors,
doctors of physicomathematical sciences, and 32 assistant professors,
candidates of physicomathematical sciences. 758 daytime students, 117correspondent
and external students, 20 postgraduate students are studied at 6 departments.
Every year best students are awarded with nominal grants for their success
in educational and research work.

A graduate with speciality "Mathematician" is prepared for
research, practical and educational work in the field of mathematics.
He can professionally teach mathematics and computer science in any of
educational institutions or work in R&D establishments and analytical
departments.
A graduate with speciality "Computer science" is prepared for
research work in the field of theoretical (mathematical) computer science,
practical activities on realization of information projects, program complexes,
system dataware, new information technologies, as well as for teaching
computer science as fundamental discipline in the hire and high educational
institutions on the basis of modern achievements in theoretical computer
science. He can teach mathematics as a related subject, work in scientific
research institutes, educational institutions, computer centers, informationanalytical
departments.
The graduate with speciality " Applied Mathematics " is prepared
for research, practical and educational work in the field of mathematics,
mechanics, computer science, applied economy and physics. He is prepared
for the problem decision in mathematical modelling and numerical analysis
in various areas of natural sciences. He can professionally teach computer
science in educational institutions, work in scientific research institutes,
educational institutions, informationanalytical departments, in manufacture
and business.

The Faculty hosts the following scientific schools and conferences:
Crimean Autumn Mathematical School on Spectral and Evolutionary Problems;
International Scientific Conference on Intellectual Information Processing;
the Crimean International Mathematical School on Liapunov Method of Functions
and its Applications.
The Faculty has its own Editorial Board of the Journal titled Academic
Records of Tavricheskiy National University. Mathematics and Informatics
Series (http://twimtaurida.hotbox.ru/);; mathematics and informatics
section at the "Iskatel" Small Academy of Sciences; the centre
of mathematical and computer education for professional programmers, skilled
computer users and those who prepare themselves for entrance exams in
mathematics.

The Faculty trains Bachelors, Specialists and Masters in three specialities:
Mathematics, Informatics, and Applied Mathematics. Students of Mathematics
choose one of the following specialisations in their third year: Mathematical
Analysis, Theory of Functions, Differential Equations, or Geometry.
Students of informatics specialise in Applied Informatics.
Students of Applied Mathematics specialise in Mathematical Modelling.

The Faculty has wide scientific relations with mathematicians of different
countries of the world. Among the establishments that cooperation is maintained
are: Regensburg University, Germany (Professors R. Menniken, C. Tretter.
R. Denk, V. Hardt. Professor N.D. Kopachevsky reads lectures there on
the invitation of Regensburg University); Lomonosov Moscow State University
and the RAS Computer Centre, Russia (The Department of Functional Analysis
and Functions Theory of the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics  Professors
A.G. Kostyuchenko, A.A. Shkalikov, V.V. Vlasov; The Faculty of Computational
Mathematics and Cybernetics  Academician Yu.I. Zhuravlyov, Corresponding
member K.V. Rudakov), joint scientific researches in mathematical models
of recognition, forecasting and decisionmaking, Tel Aviv University,
Israel (Professor Israel Gohberg, V. A. Grinshtein), joint scientific
researches in mathematical modelling in mechanics of continuous environments,
Janos Bolyai Mathematical Society, Hungary.
