• Statistics with a human face

    Baby face

    Stereo-cameras can provide high resolution data on surfaces such as faces and statistical methods provide a means of analysing the shape information.

  • Wavelet analysis of river flows

    Plot

    Results from a wavelet analysis of daily maximum river flows and their relationships with climate drivers.

  • Interactive Illustrations using R

    Screenshot

    The rpanel package allows highly interactive plots to be created easily in R. This can be particularly effective for creating dynamic teaching illustrations.

  • A deformation of a singularity

    Singularity

    The space of deformations of a singularity carries the structure of a Frobenius manifold.

  • Multi-scale modelling of heart

    Ventricle model

    A left ventricle model with normal vectors on the endocardial surface.

  • Simulation of swimming algae

    Flowfield algae

    The flowfield around the biflagellated swimming green algae Chlamydomonas nivalis produced using the method of regularized stokeslets: the flagella beat at 50 Hz.

  • Mountain pine beetle attack

    Mountain pine beetle attack

    In collaboration with entomologists we are using mathematical models to give insight into mountain pine beetle adaptation to changing temperatures.

The School of Mathematics & Statistics combines world-leading research expertise in pure and applied mathematics and statistics. The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 have now been announced. This a major review of research across all disciplines, which takes place in the UK every few years. The results give an internationally excellent or world-leading rating to 89% of research in our school, and we are ranked 8th out of 53 submissions in the mathematical sciences across the UK for `research intensity' in the Times Higher Education tables.

If you study with us you can benefit from our excellent teaching standards and supportive learning environment – an impressive 97% of our final year undergraduate students rate themselves as satisfied with their overall experience, according to the 2011 National Student Survey, rating us 1st in Scotland and 2nd in the UK.
