Mathematics

The research in Mathematics covers Pure and Applied Mathematics. Within each field of Pure Mathematics there are multiple subgroups. In analysis, one subgroup concentrates on operator theory and function theory, the other on Banach algebras, cohomology and modules. In algebra there are subgroups devoted to the study of infinite groups, and finite classical groups and their geometries. Applied Mathematics staff have research interests in: fluid dynamics, including numerical modelling of quantum fluids (superfluid liquid Helium and Bose-Einstein condensates);classical and astrophysical fluids (the Earth's core, planetary dynamos, accretion discs and galaxies); cosmology, including the very early universe and quantum gravity.

Entry requirements
