School of Mathematics Research

The School of Mathematics at Birmingham University is internationally renowned for its research in many areas of mathematics.

There are flourishing research groups in algebra, analysis, applied analysis, combinatorics, fluid dynamics, numerical analysis, optimization and statistics.  The main research activities in the School are summarised by the three research groups listed below. 

Pure Mathematics

The Pure Mathematics Group has internationally renowned research groups in algebra, analysis and combinatorics.

Applied Mathematics

The Applied Mathematics Group is recognised for world leading and internationally excellent research and has collaborations with researchers from industry, healthcare, and other areas of science and engineering.

Theoretical and Computational Optimization

The main focus of the research activity of the group is on mathematical theory and methods applicable to managerial decision-making, particularly non-linear, discrete, and multi-criteria optimization. Research is typically a mixture of theoretical investigation and practical application or industrial collaboration.

Our mathematics colloquium is held twice a term, and there are weekly seminars for each research group.
