There are strong research groups in algebra, arithmetic and algebraic geometry, group theory and complex and functional analysis.
A brief overview of certain specific research interests includes:
- analysis of magnetic materials
- analytic K-theory (including tensor products)
- algebraic cobordism
- algebraic K-theory
- banach algebras
- c*-algebras and their classification
- calculus of variations, PDEs and networks
- collective behaviour of vortex lattices in superconductors
- combinatorial and geometric group theory (including growth and finiteness of groups)
- data clustering
- document linking
- elliptic curves
- forward-backward diffusion equations
- geometric data analysis
- image processing
- Iwasawa theory
- meromorphic function theory (particularly value distribution theory)
- modular and automorphic forms
- nonassociative algebras
- quadratic forms and forms of higher degree
- quadratic and Hermitian lattices
- vortex dynamics
Conferences and seminars:
Postgraduate students are encouraged to participate in the many School research-related activities, and attend appropriate national and international conferences. We also offer a diverse range of research seminars, which you are welcome to attend.
Research students also have access to specialised mathematical training courses such as those provided by the Academy for PhD Training in Statistics (APTS) or the Mathematics Access Grid Conferencing (MAGIC) group who run courses using videoconferencing technology.
The school has active research groups in many branches of Applied Mathematics (comprising Mathematical Physics and Theoretical Mechanics), Pure Mathematics and Statistics. It is also host to the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology. Much of the research undertaken is multidisciplinary and crosses traditional boundaries.
The taught masters programmes offered in the school have been carefully designed to reflect our research strengths and are being constantly informed and updated by the work taking place in our research groups.
