Our mathematical research is undertaken in the context of an interdisciplinary structure that recognises that mathematics, including what can be very abstract mathematics, is an essential part of research in many other disciplines. Members of our Department are linked with other departments and contribute to their research agendas.

It is characteristic of the uses of mathematics that there is often a central core of ideas which has applications in a number of disciplines. We encourage this view, and the cross-fertilisation that goes with it.

Research groups

Our research is structured in two research groups which reflect the major fields of mathematical research of the group members:

  • Algebra and Discrete Mathematics Group
  • Mathematical Modelling and Data Analysis Group.

Our staff members also participate in several groups in other departments and schools at our University.

Publications

You can read papers published by members of our staff in our University's Research Repository.
