Research

The research interests of the Department cut a broad swathe through both pure and applied areas of mathematics, ranging from 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 in the Department is organised into a number of research groups, but there are many overlaps and links between these:

There is also an active PhD programme associated with the research groups.

The Department is part of the following research networks and collaborations:

Our Reputation

The 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) confirms the high quality research being produced by the Department of Mathematics, with three-quarters of our research output rated as world-leading or internationally excellent. Our research in mathematics has contributed strongly to Surrey’s rise to 22nd place among 106 institutions for ‘Research Power’ across the engineering and physical science disciplines, based on the quality of our research.
