Algebra and Analysis

Research interests include algebra, arithmetic and algebraic geometry, group theory and complex and functional analysis. Postgraduate students are encouraged to participate in the many school research-related activities, and attend appropriate national and international conferences. The course offers a diverse range of research seminars, which students are welcome to attend. Research students also have access to specialised mathematical training courses such as those provided by the Academy for PhD Training in Statistics (APTS) or the Mathematics Access Grid Conferencing (MAGIC) group who run courses using videoconferencing technology.

Entry requirements

Upper 2nd Class Honours degree in mathematics (or mathematics related subject) or its equivalent. International research students need to achieve an IELTS score of 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in each element.

Course modules

Research ares include: analysis of magnetic materials; analytic K-theory (including tensor products); algebraic cobordism; algebraic K-theory; banach algebras; c*-algebras and their classification; calculus of variations; PDEs and networks; cohomology; collective behaviour of vortex lattices in superconductors; combinatorial and geometric group theory (including growth and finiteness of groups); data clustering; document linking; elliptic curves; forward-backward diffusion equations; geometric data analysis; image processing; Iwasawa theory; meromorphic function theory (particularly value distribution theory); modular and automorphic forms; nonassociative algebras; quadratic forms and forms of higher degree; quadratic and Hermitian lattices; vortex dynamics.
