Research in the Centre for Mathematical Science
The representation theory group focusses on modern aspects of the representation theory of finite groups, algebraic groups and related algebras, drawing motivation from geometry, statistical mechanics and string theory.
The mathematical physics group focuses on quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and string theory. One of the distinguishing features of the mathematical physics group is its strong expertise on integrable systems.
The fluid dynamics group conducts fundamental research in applied mathematics in areas of thermal convection, boundary layer theory, double diffusive convection, vortex flows, pattern formation and magnetohydrodynamics. Both analytical and computational methods are employed, including extensive use of techniques based on stability theory and asymptotic analysis.
The Mathematical Biology group uses game theory and related mathematical methods to model biological populations. Key areas include multi-player game theory, evolutionary models on graphs, and the modelling of specific behaviours such as kleptoparasitism and evolutionary signalling strategies in response to predators.
Publications and preprints
The *publication* page lists the Centre's recent research pages. More detailed information on these and other papers can also be found under the individual group pages.
*Research Seminars* are held on a regular basis. Use is also made of *other seminars in London*.
Opportunities for PhD Research
There are opportunities for postgraduate research leading to a PhD here in the Mathematics Department in many of our fields of interest.
