Research Groups

Research within the department is split broadly into five groups:

Pure Mathematics Group

The areas of research of the pure mathematics group include global analysis, arithmetic, differential and hyperbolic geometry, number theory, representation theory, topology and interactions of these areas with dynamics, physics, engineering and computer science (robotics).

More information may be found on the Pure Mathematics webpages


Numerical Analysis Group

The group has a wide range of interests in the numerical and mathematical analysis of partial differential equations. Its research areas in numerical analysis include finite element, multigrid and spectral methods.

Centre for Particle Theory

The Centre for Particle Theory has members in both the Mathematics and Physics Departments. As the largest Particle Theory group in the country, most of the main areas of research into Elementary Particle Theory are represented.

Statistics and Probability Group

The interests of the group cover a wide range of topics associated with statistics and probability. In particular, topics studied include Bayes linear methods, applied Statistics, analysis of designed experiments, probability, percolation and geometric probability and quasi-stationarity.

Biomathematics Group

This is a newly formed group within the Department, whose members are in close scientific contact and collaboration with researchers belonging to the recently created Biophysical Sciences Institute. The group's research focuses on mathematical modelling of biological structures and processes.
