KIAS was founded in 1996 and currently has three schools: Mathematics, Physics, and Computational Sciences. Its primary aims are to provide researchers in pure mathematics and theoretical physics environment to concentrate on their research without other duties. As a theoretical research institute, it has no formal curriculum, degree programs, or experimental laboratories.
