The Leiden Mathematical Institute

The Leiden Mathematical Institute is a modern institute aiming at excellence both in research and in education. Many well-known Dutch mathematicians work and have worked here, such as, for example, analyst Thomas J. Stieltjes, who gave his name to the Stieltjes integral, and number theorist Hendrik D. Kloosterman, who was the inventor of the Kloosterman sum. The influence of both these mathematicians can still be felt today, with the Institute’s distinct dual focus on both analysis and number theory.
