The Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Analysis and Dynamics Research brings together leading Finnish mathematicians working in analysis and its applications. It consists of nine research teams working at three universities: University of Helsinki, University of Jyväskylä and University of Oulu. The research teams are named after their respective research focus areas and are listed below. 

The director of the CoE Antti Kupiainen is a leading mathematical physicist whose work has spanned a wide spectrum of fields including statistical mechanics and phase transitions, field theory, chaotic dynamics, fluid mechanics and turbulence. He has also applied ideas coming from physics to rigorous mathematics in the fields of probability, non-linear parabolic PDE's and dynamical systems.

The vice director of the CoE Pekka Koskela is a productive analyst who has published a number of seminal results in the theory of Sobolev spaces and mappings. He is also one of the initiators of the theory of analysis on metric spaces.
