About us

The Instituto de Cálculo (IC) is a research institute of the Universidad de Buenos Aires, our activities take place at the Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales (FCEyN).

The IC started its activities in 1961 under Dr. Manuel Sadosky´s direction. Over the years, the Institute has become a consolidated group of researchers from different areas of mathematics, statistics, computing and physics, who develop a stable research task, many of them multidisciplinary. The researchers maintain permanent links with other universities and centers both from abroad and from Argentina, which has been reflected in the production of joint publications and frequent visits by visiting professors. The teachers and researchers of the Institute have actively participated in the creation and development of the Master in Medical Physics, the Master and Career of Specialization in Mathematical Statistics and the Program of Updating and the Career of Specialization in Statistics for Health Sciences. At the end of 2007, the Calculus Institute was accepted as the Research Institute of the University of Buenos Aires in recognition of its research trajectory, postgraduate human resources training and technology transfer.
