Geometry lies at the core of modern mathematics with deep and wide implications in all other mathematical disciplines. In the last decade there has been an extraordinary confluence of ideas in mathematics and theoretical physics brought about by pioneering discoveries in geometry and analysis. Geometry pervades modern technology (medical imaging and information security being two well known examples).

A University Research Centre and the research arm of the Discipline of Pure Mathematics in the School of Mathematical Sciences, the Institute for Geometry and its Applications (IGA) was founded on the 7th of November 1996, in recognition of the strong group of researchers in geometry and its applications at Adelaide, with its inaugural director being Professor Michael Eastwood (Adelaide). The IGA organises symposia, workshops, instructional schools and regular seminars. The IGA also provides collaborative opportunities to promote research in geometry. The IGA staff are currently researching in a wide range of subjects in the area of geometry including differential, finite, complex, non-commutative and algebraic geometry together with other geometric topics in mathematical physics, partial differential equations, index theory, K-theory, moduli spaces, information security, string theory, and representation theory. The IGA has recently been recognized as being one of the University's Research Expertise and Strengths in the fundamental disciplines.

In the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) nationwide rankings, pure mathematics at Adelaide received an outstanding score of 5 (out of 5), rating it well above world standard as well as (joint) top ranking in the nation. For the ERA rankings within the university, see here
