Organization profile

The interdisciplinary mathematics research activities at the University span the breadth of the subject and are creating an impact across diverse sectors including energy, finance and public health.

We focus the vast expertise in our Department around key themes that maximise our ability to provide mathematical solutions to global societal issues.

Our research themes assist today’s key challenges by focusing in the following areas:

Algebra, logic and number theory
Analysis, geometry and dynamical systems
Continuum mechanics
Mathematics in the life sciences
Numerical analysis and scientific computing
Probability, financial mathematics and actuarial science
Statistics, inverse problems, uncertainty quantification and data science

Our researchers work with centres and institutes both inside and outside of the University, expanding the range of facilities we have available and broadening collaboration opportunities.

Manchester mathematicians have changed the world, and the quality of our research today continues the proud traditions of the past.
