Areas of interest include: Functional inequalities and applications, Lévy-type processes, Stochastic modelling of fractal, multifractal and multiscale systems, Infinite dimensional stochastic analysis and others.
The ability to think rationally and to process data clearly and accurately are highly valued by employers. Mathematics graduates earn on average 50% more than most other graduates. The most popular areas are the actuarial profession, the financial sector, IT, computer programming and systems administration, and opportunities within business and industry where employers need mathematicians for research and development, statistical analysis, marketing and sales.
The Aubrey Truman Reading Room, located in the centre of the Department of Mathematics, houses the departmental library and computers for student use, and is a popular venue for students to work independently on the regular exercise sheets set by their lecturers, and to discuss mathematics together.
The main university library, the Learning and Information Centre (LIC), contains a notably extensive collection of mathematics books.
The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 show that our research environment (how the Department supports research staff and students) and the impact of our research (its value to society) were both judged to be 100% world leading or internationally excellent.
All academic staff in Mathematics are active researchers and the department has a thriving research culture.
