Geometry and Topology

Our research group has strong links with both the Algebra & Number Theory and the Mathematical Physics research groups. You'll find these invaluable, as opportunities to discuss your work and expand your thinking abound. The School of Mathematics is a vibrant community of more than 60 academic and related staff supervising 60 students. Working within one of the largest mathematics groups in the UK, you'll be completing your degree in an environment that hums with a busy graduate school life, and you'll have the chance to make your mark in seminars, workshops, clubs and outings. The Hodge Institute is the home of algebra, geometry, number theory and topology research groups in the School of Mathematics. Our interests include: - algebraic geometry - derived categories - algebraic and geometric topology - twistor theory - category theory - integrable systems While we can offer a large community of researchers under one roof, we believe in encouraging you to gain as broad a perspective as possible. The best way to do this is to involve yourself in the international dialogue on your research area, through attending conferences and symposia, and visiting your peers in centres of research worldwide. Throughout your studies, you'll be given opportunities to travel to events and institutions that will allow you to gain this perspective, and open up new areas of investigation.
