Strong international reputation for research Strong international reputation for research

The School of Mathematics has a strong international reputation for our research and students are taught by leading experts in a broad range of topics in mathematics.

The quality of our world-leading and internationally excellent research ranks the School of Mathematics 7th in the UK in terms of our output in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. In the 2014 REF, 83% of our research was found to be world-leading or internationally excellent, and 100% of our research was internationally recognised.

We have robust research links and co-operation with mathematicians in the rest of Europe, Russia, the United States, Africa and Australia, and a specialised library housed in our graduate common room, as well as a well-equipped computing laboratory. We hold regular seminars in both Applied Mathematics and Pure Mathematics.

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Mathematics (CIMR) was established by the School of Mathematics in 2000 with the remit to provide industry, business and academic partners direct access to the research expertise within the School. This Centre facilitates contact with academic and non-academic partners through joint seminars and joint research projects.

The Complex Systems with Interfaces (COSI) research network was set up 2015 and is hosted by the Schools of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham, the University of Nottingham, and the University of East Anglia. Researchers in the network study complex interfacial problems, including multiphase flows, tumour growth, and geophysical flows. The group organises three one-day meetings a year.

SEEMOD, the South and East of England MODel theory network connects the Logic and Model Theory research groups at UEA, in London and at Oxford. The first meeting was at UEA in February 2016. There are 3 or 4 meetings a year, with speakers including PhD students, postdocs and senior researchers discussing their recent and ongoing work. The network is supported by an LMS Scheme 3 grant.
