Department of Mathematics

City’s Department of Mathematics brings together high-quality undergraduate education and an active research body of academics and PhD students.

The department has a good reputation for student satisfaction and enviable graduate employability. All undergraduate Mathematics courses can be extended to four-year MMath (Hons) degrees and are carried out in conjunction with a range of other departments, producing a truly interdisciplinary approach to the subject. The department’s research, in mathematical biology, mathematical physics, and representation theory, often conducted in collaboration with other institutions, regularly leads to publications in internationally excellent journals and presentations at global conferences.

Study

The department offers a range of courses at undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research degree level.

Research

The Department of Mathematics contains three research groups undertaking fundamental research in pure and applied mathematics:

Representation Theory Research Group

The representation theory group focuses on modern aspects of the representation theory of finite groups, algebraic groups and related algebras, drawing motivation from geometry, statistical mechanics string theory.

Mathematical Physics Research Group

The mathematical physics group focuses on quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, string theory and fluid dynamics. One of the distinguishing features of the mathematical physics group is its strong expertise on integrable systems.

Mathematical Biology Research Group

The Mathematical Biology group applies mathematical methods to increase our understanding of the biological world, and the central focus is on the mathematical modelling of evolution. There are three main areas of research: evolutionary game theory, cultural evolution, and the modelling of evolution on networks.

Seminar series

Departmental Seminars Spring 2016

Alongside a range of conferences and workshops, the department organises a regular seminar series. Seminars take place at 3pm in room B103.
