Centre for Mathematical Sciences - our research

Our research covers a wide range of mathematical and statistical areas. The structure is centered around focused research groups with strong collaborative links internationally and inside the UK. The vibrant and supportive atmosphere is strengthened by active seminar programmes.

The Mathematical Sciences Research Centre has been rapidly expanding, adding research excellence in many areas to its portfolio. 

Our submission to REF 2014 saw the contribution from 16 staff members (14.4 FTEs) to the unit B10 'Mathematical Sciences', and, yet, the number of excellent staff members has increased even more since the submission date.

We submitted 65 scientific publications, and 68% of our publications were ranked internationally excellent or world-leading with an 11% footprint in the world-leading category.
