Research menu


With over 65 academic staff passionate about their mathematics, the School of Mathematical Sciences is an exciting place to be for those who share our love of mathematical discovery.

87% of our work submitted to the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) was judged to be either world leading or internationally excellent by the Mathematics Panel.

Research at the School of Mathematical Sciences covers a broad range of key subjects in pure and applied mathematics. Our research activities are consolidated into six research groups  which reflect the School’s key strengths: Algebra, Combinatorics, Complex Systems and Networks, Dynamical Systems and Statistical Physics, Geometry and Analysis, Probability and Applications. Details can be found in the specialised research groups sections.

The School’s overarching goal is to achieve and sustain research excellence by creating a supportive research environment and fostering a research culture that enables a wide range of mathematical activity to flourish. Details about our activities can be found in the Event section.
