Number theory is one of the oldest parts of Mathematics studying the fundamental properties of numbers.
This group uses structures, methods and tools of arithmetical origin to research areas which include:
- zeta and L functions
- arithmetic geometry
- analytic number theory
- local number theory
- Iwasawa theory
- higher class field theories
- higher adelic analysis and geometry
- higher automorphic forms
- geometric and categorical theories ans correspondences
- computational number theory
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.
