The research interests of the School cover several areas of Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. These areas are not mutually exclusive and there are considerable benefits from interactions between the different areas that enhance the research environment. Both Pure and Applied are highly rated internationally for their research and most members of the School have ongoing collaborations with mathematicians overseas and elsewhere in the UK, and many overseas mathematicians spend periods in Glasgow working with members of the School.
There are several series of research seminars with invited speakers from the UK and overseas and also a regular postgraduate seminar where our PhD students can develop their presentational skills. All this helps to generate a lively and mutually supportive research environment, which has led to the award of coveted prizes and competitive Fellowships for several of our younger staff.
The main areas of research are broadly described within the headings below. Follow the links to more detailed descriptions.
