The research interests of the Department cut a broad swathe through both pure and applied areas of mathematics.
Our degree programmes are run in a lively environment where teaching and research are well-integrated.
The Department is currently accepting applications for PhD studentships in each of its four research areas. Find out more.
We provide a free service for all postgraduates, researchers and staff members.
We are a friendly department of academic staff, research staff, tutors and administrators.
Ian Morris is in Sweden for the first two weeks of September attending and speaking at the Fractal Geometry and Dynamics programme, being held at the Institut Mittag-Leffler which is part of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, in Djursholm Sweden. On Thursday 14 September he is giving a talk on “Continuity, computability, and strict monotonicity of the affinity dimension“. A link to the talk with abstract is here.
Tom Bridges was in London last week (4-8 September) for the IUTAM Symposium on Wind-Wave Interaction held in the Mathematics Department at University College London. At the conference he gave a talk on “Breakdown of two-wave interaction and extremity: a nonlinear mechanism“.
Matt Turner is visiting the University of Bristol this week (31 August to 1 September). He is representing the FMS Research Group at the kickoff workshop of the Special Interest Group on Surface and Internal Waves, which is part of the EPSRC-funded UK Fluids Network. In this first workshop the aim is to get to know the network teams, identify “grand challenges” in the theory, experiments and observations of ocean waves, and discuss match-making for joint EPSRC grant proposals.
