Direct Multisearch (DMS), a solver suited for derivative-free multiobjective optimization, co-authored by Ana Luísa Custódio, one of the Operations Research Group members of CMA, is cited as a reference for a new function of the Global Optimization Toolbox of release 2018b of Matlab.


The CMA member Rogério Martins, was nominated to be a member, between 2019-2022, of the Committee for Raising Public Awareness of Mathematics of the European Mathematical Society.

ICM 2018

Professor Rogério Martins was invited to give a prestigious lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM 2018).

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is the largest conference for the topic of mathematics and it is held every 4 years.


C. Saiago, jointly with C. Johnson published a book in the Cambridge University Press, Eigenvalues, Multiplicities and Graphs (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics). This book gives a unified development of how the graph of a symmetric matrix influences the possible multiplicities of its eigenvalues.


A multidisciplinary team including mathematicians, ecologists and biologists, and coordinated by our Researcher Member Jorge Orestes Cerdeira, has proposed a mathematical method to understand and better explore the ecological niche of a species.
