Mathematical Analysis

Research areas range widely across pure and applied analysis, including probability, statistics and computational analysis. Training emphasises not only individual study but also teamwork, communication and engagement with users of mathematics. Mathematical analysis provides the conceptual framework and methodology for a large part of current mathematical research and innovation; it underpins the majority of novel applications of mathematics in science, engineering and industry; problems originating in science, engineering and industry are typically formulated in mathematical terms using analysis, while new mathematical ideas, techniques and algorithms usually make their impact in application areas through the means of analysis.

Entry requirements

The minimum entry requirement is a 1st Class Honours degree, awarded after a 4 year course in mathematics or mathematics related subject; or a 3 year degree together with a 1 year postgraduate course on advanced mathematics or a mathematics-related subject; part III (MMath/MASt) of the mathematical tripos provides such a course. IELTS score of 7.0.

Course modules

During their 1st year students will undertake: Cambridge centre for analysis (CCA) teamwork projects in various areas of analysis; 2 courses chosen from the extensive menu of part III (MMath/MASt) and graduate courses offered by the faculty; an initial research project with their prospective supervisor and an external project.

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on research dissertation and oral examination only.

Sponsorship information

The Centre for Dcotoral Training in Analysis is funded by the EPSRC and the University of Cambridge. It offers 10 studentships to Home and EU students each year.
