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.
More than 90 percent of the research activity we submitted to the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 was classified as being at least internationally recognised in standing, with approximately 55 percent being world leading or internationally excellent.
We have strong research groups in Applied Mathematics (fluid dynamics; mechanics of solids; geophysical fluid dynamics; scientific computing) and in Pure Mathematics (group theory; representation theory; number theory; combinatorics; model theory; set theory and ergodic theory).
We have robust research links and co-operation with mathematicians in the rest of Europe, Israel, Russia, the United States 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.
