Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics
Our students begin their research with a good understanding of advanced material, which they build on in various ways throughout the course of their PhD studies. The topic of the research thesis may be chosen from the wide range of subjects studied within the department. Principal research areas are: pure mathematics: algebra, analysis, topology, discrete mathematics, geometry, number theory, algebraic geometry; statistics laboratory within department accepts graduates working in wide range of subjects within statistics, probability, operational research and systems theory; applications (to communications networks, financial modelling, physics, ecology, dynamic systems, archaeology, etc) form central part of laboratory's research.
1st class Honours degree, awarded after a 4 year course in mathematics or mathematics/statistics, or a three-year degree together with a one-year postgraduate course in those areas. Part III (MMath/MASt) of the mathematical tripos provides such a course. Entry is competitive and a higher level of preparation may be required. Applicants whose 1st language is not English may be asked to submit evidence that they meet the required standard.
Assessment is based on written reports, oral assessments and a research dissertation.
