Organisation profile

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has an international reputation in the use of mathematical analysis for real-world problems. The recent Research Assessment Exercise judged that 95% of the research in the Department was of a "quality that is recognised internationally" and 50% of our research is "internationally excellent".

Research within the Department covers a wide range of applied and applicable mathematics with a prominent commitment to nonlinear mathematics and the solution of industrial problems. The Department has collaborative links with researchers in many institutions, including other universities, research establishments and industry in the UK, Europe, the USA and elsewhere in the world. 

As a focus for activities - primarily in research but also in teaching - the Department has adopted nonlinear systems and solution of industrial problems as a major theme. 

Research activity has also been focused into key priority areas in order to strengthen and advance the research we undertake. These research areas often overlap and there is significant collaboration between groups.

Research activity within the department is organised under the following groups: 

  • Applied Analysis
  • Continuum Mechanics and Industrial Mathematics
  • Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computation
  • Population Modelling and Epidemiology
  • Stochastic Analysis

The Department also has a joint research group with the Department of Mathematics at the University of Glasgow: Centre for Mathematics Applied to the Life Sciences (external link) (CMALS). This involves researchers from all the above groups.
