   Wuhan Institute of Physics and Mathematics (WIPM) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is located in Wuhan scenic area, lakeside of Dong Hu(East Lake) and foot of Xiao Hong Shan(Small Hill Hong). It was rebuilt by merging the former "Wuhan Institute of Physics" (founded in 1958) and "Wuhan Institute of Mathematical Sciences" (founded in 1957) into one.
    Before merging of the two Institutes, famous atomic physicist WANG Tian-Chuan, famous physicistt ZHANG Cheng-Xiu, space-physicist and academician of CAS, LI Jun, famous mathematicians and academician of CAS LI Guo-Ping, and academician of CAS DING Xia-Qi had worked for long time, and held important posts in Wuhan Institute of Physics or Wuhan Institute of Mathematical Sciences, respectively.
  The research interests of WIPM are: Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Mathematical Sciences, Optoelectronics and related high technologies. They cover Magnetic Resonance methodology, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Cold Atom Physics, Quantum Information, Nonlinear Partial Differential Equation, Atomic Frequency Standards, Lidar etc.
  On these bases, combination of physics and mathematics, biology, chemistry, information sciences and other disciplines of sciences are enforced, with the aim to cultivate new growing points of interdisciplinary branches. Center of Cold Atom Physics of CAS (Wuhan), and Research Center of Wuhan Magnetic Resonance all are affiliated in the WIPM.
    Leading members of WIPM discussing the great plan of development  
  The main body of basic researches includes: State Key Laboratory of Magnetic Resonance and Atomic and Molecular Physics (MRAMP), Laboratory of Mathematic Sciences, Laboratory of Atomic Frequency Standards and Laboratory of Optoelectronic Detection. WIPM is also one of the institutions to jointly found the Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics . Strong supporting systems of magnetic resonance, and spectroscopic techniques, frequency standard, information center, high technology company (in sharing control) of transforming modern achievements are also well running. WIPM is well equipped with excellent research facilities. The research condition is quite well.

  WIPM has 4 doctor-, and several master-degrees programs, and 1 post-doctorship station. It has established scientific exchanges with USA, UK, Japan, France, etc. Recently, the Institute enforces optimization of their staff members, by introducing and training a group of high-level modern top scientists, and formed several teams of young scientists. They give full play to their talent. Their research works, and achievements show many specialties in China, and play a role also in the world.

   WIPM is one of the standing members of the Chinese Physical Society, the affiliated unit of the National Magnetic Resonance Society, and the boarding unit of the Hubei and Wuhan Physics Society. WIPM is also editing "Acta Mathematica Scientia" (English and Chinese Edition), and "Chinese Journal of Magnetic Resonance", They are all Chinese Natural Key Science Periodics.
