Department of Mathematics


The research interests of the Department cut a broad swathe through both pure and applied areas of mathematics

Research covers analysis, nonlinear partial differential equations, ergodic theory, and geometry to quantum field theory, general relativity, string theory, fluid dynamics, complex systems, mathematical biology, statistics, and modelling in the life sciences. A particular emphasis is placed on research at the interface between pure and applied mathematics.

Research groups

Research in the Department is organised into a number of research groups, but there are many overlaps and links between these.

Research blog

  • carinaA new scheme, being run out of Nottingham, has been set up on Facebook for the promotion of Women in Mathematics.  Carina Dunlop has been invited to contribute and her profile has now gone live with link here.  The WiM Facebook stream has 5000 followers and some posts get up to 15000 readers.

  • blackholesThe paper “Anomaly corrected heterotic horizons” by Andrea Fontanella, Jan Gutowski, and George Papadopoulos (King’s College London) has been accepted for publication in the Journal of High Energy Physics.  The arXiv version can be found here.
