There are fifteen to twenty high speed trains from Madrid to Zaragoza and viceversa every day, which take some minutes less than one hour and a half to reach the destination. From Barcelona to Zaragoza and viceversa there are also fifteen to twenty high speed trains every day in each direction, which take one hour and a half or two hours depending on the train. Timetables, prices and other details about these and other trains can be found in the spanish railway company Renfe.
Once in the Zaragoza-Delicias railway station, the easiest way to arrive at the Mathematics building is taking a taxi to San Francisco square (plaza de San Francisco). The main entrance to the campus (Ciudad Univeritaria) is there. Under normal traffic circumstances, the taxi should cost around 5 or 6 euros. The distance from San Francisco square to the Mathematics building is about 300 metres (see the map below with the campus and its neighbourhood).
By bus: all the bus companies arrive at Zaragoza-Delicias station. Timetables, prices, and other details can be seen in their corresponding web pages: Alsa (Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao and other places), Jiménez (Valencia, Logroño).
By car: the main road from Madrid to Zaragoza is the A-2 highway; the usual point of arrival to the city is marked in the map with an M. The letter V points one of the possible entries from Valencia by highway. There are two possible accesses from Logroño, Pamplona and Bilbao, which correspond to Zaragoza-center and Zaragoza-south; they are marked in the map with an L. The main access from Barcelona, at the north of the city, is out of the map, but you can also access by the ring-road ronda Hispanidad to meet the point V.

The campus is the green area surrounding the University hospital.
The Mathematical Analysis group is located at the first floor of the Mathematics building of the Faculty of Sciences, in the campus of San Francisco square. In the map, the Mathematics building is in the centre, coloured in black. San Francisco square (plaza de San Francisco), where the main entrance to the campus is, can be seen in the lower right part.
