Artists invited to showcase work at new festival
A new visual arts festival is coming to Durham – and artists from North East England are being invited to get involved.

Durham ranked 6th in the UK
Durham University is ranked 6th in the UK according to the 2019 Complete University Guide – cementing its place as one of the UK’s leading universities. 

Reducing our impact on the environment
Durham University has become the first university in the North of England – and the second in the UK – to join a new campaign aimed at reducing plastic waste.

Hungry birds as climate change drives food mismatch
Warmer springs create a mismatch where hungry chicks hatch too late to feast on abundant caterpillars, new research shows.

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.
