African Mathematics Millennium Science Initiative

The African Mathematics Millennium Science Initiative (AMMSI) is a distributed network of mathematics research, training and promotion throughout sub-Saharan Africa. It has five Regional Offices located in Botswana, Cameroon, Kenya, Nigeria and Senegal. It is a project established by the Millenium Science Initiative (MSI), administered by the Science Initiative Group (SIG). The primary goal of the MSI, established in 1999, is to create and nuture world-class science and scientific talent in the developing world by strengthening S&T capacity through integrated programmes of research and training, planned and driven by local scientists.





Realising the need to demonstrate application of dynamical systems in real life situations and to expose the participants to mathematical skills of formulating complex dynamical models for biological and technical systems gave birth to this school. The need motivated our desire to give our postgraduate students skills in mathematical modelling and analysis of complex dynamic models. The courses and lectures in the school will focus on deterministic and statistical models of biological, ecological and technical systems, and more specifically on the methods used to select, represent, quantify natural phenomena and then analyze the outputs and results with particular attention on long-term behaviour. They will cover the following fields:

Dynamical systems: courses will provide knowledge about dynamical systems in mathematics (discrete and continuous time) as well as training with modelling tools (programming) and numerical methods. The courses will be based on widely used theoretical models in ecology (prey/predators models, competition models, epidemiology etc.) and will be illustrated by current applications to ecosystems.


Multi-scale analysis and advanced computational skills: The formulated models can have interacting phenomena of different scales, which makes them complex. Improvements in the speed of computation will not be sufficient to cope with numerous interactions, hence the need for multi-scale analysis andhigh-level computation, which allow taking benefits of patterns induced by scale differences in order to understand complex models and make them more tractable. Developing multi-scale and efficient computational skills allow extracting the most important aspects of a model.


East African Universities Mathematics Programme(eaump)



This programme aims at alleviating the dismal state of Mathematics in Eastern Africa. It has been noted

that the state of Mathematics in this region is very poor and so corrective measures are needed urgently

alleviate its status. Thus EAUMP aims at enhancing capacity building as well as initiating and strengthening

research activities and postgraduate training in Mathematics within the region. It is envisaged that EAUMP

will promote professional collaboration among participating institutions.


Institut De Recherche Pour Le Développement

he IRD (Institut de recherche pour le développement) is a French research organism, original and unique on the European development research scene.

Emphasizing interdisciplinarity, the IRD has focused its research for over 65 years on the relationship between man and its environment, in Africa, Mediterranean, Latin America, Asia and the French tropical overseas territories.

Its research, training and innovation activities are intended to contribute to the social, economic and cultural development of southern countries.


International Mathematical Union (imu)

IMU is an international non-governmental and non-profit scientific organization, with the purpose of promoting international cooperation in mathematics.

It is a member of the International Council for Science (ICSU) and has endorsed repeatedly ICSU's Principle of Freedom, Responsibility & Universality of Science.

The objectives of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) are:

  1. To promote international cooperation in mathematics
  2. To support and assist the International Congress of Mathematicians and other international scientific meetings or conferences
  3. To encourage and support other international mathematical activities considered likely to contribute to the development of mathematical science in any of  its    aspects, pure, applied, or educational

Mathematics Association Of Kenya (mak)

Mathematics Association of Kenya (MAK) is a non-govermental, non-profit making academic association fully registered at the office of the registrar. It draws its members from the general public especially in the academic sector.
Mathematics Association of Kenya is currently seeking to be a member of the International Mathematics Union (IMU) and is also a beneficiary of an array of international mathematics organisations such as Africa Mathematics Union, ICTP, ISP amongst other mathematical communities.
The main objective of this association is to effect improvement in mathematics education country wide, to provide means of communication for this purpose, and to take such measures as may appear expedient to advance the views of the Association on any question affecting mathematics education.

Mentoring African Research In Mathematics (marm)

The Mentoring African Research in Mathematics (MARM) scheme was devised to support mathematics and its teaching in the countries of sub-Saharan Africa.

The programme was designed to counter the mathematics "brain-drain" from sub-Saharan Africa by supporting qualified mathematics professionals in situ. The scheme concentrates on the creation of joint research partnerships between UK mathematicians, their colleagues in sub-Saharan Africa, and doctoral students of those colleagues.

The scheme is supported by funding from the Nuffield Foundation and the Leverhulme Trust, distributed jointly to: the London Mathematical Society, International Mathematical Union (IMU), the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) and the African Mathematics Millennium Science Initiative (AMMSI). The scheme is overseen by the MARM Board.

The African Mathematical Union (amu)

The African Mathematical Union (AMU) or Union Mathematique Africaine (UMA) is the African equivalent of the International Mathematical Union. The official webpage of the AMU is in preparation and will be operated from the Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco ( Until that time we operate this website.

The Geometry Group

The geometry Group is a new Research Initiative at the School of Mathematics, University of Nairobi. It aims to foster research in Algebra and Geometry and to provide a discussion forum for its members, international guest, scientists and the public. As such, it merges activities of the original Algebraic Geometry Reading Group of October 2010.
