Research Groups

Mathematical snowflakeWe are one of the leading departments of mathematics and statistics in the United Kingdom, with 86% of our research recognised as World Leading or Internationally Excellent in the most recent (2014) Research Excellence Framework assessment (see Maths Ref 2014 page for details). A large part of our current research interests in mathematics are at the interface of pure and applied areas, while the statistics group has expertise in several areas of applied statistics. We are involved in a number of interdisciplinary research projects, including joint work with the Department of Meteorology, the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics, and the Reading Systems Biology Network.

Research in the department is organised into several research groups which overlap and interract significantly: 

(A) Analysis - Pure, Applicable and Numerical, including

  • Pure and Applicable Analysis
  • Numerical Analysis and Computational Modelling
  • Data Assimilation and Inverse Problems
(B) Statistics and Applied Statistics, including

  • Probability and Stochastic Analysis
  • Applied Statistics

(C) Complex Fluids and Theoretical Polymer Physics

(D) Centre for the Mathematics Of Human Behaviour

(E) Mathematical Biology
