The School ranked an impressive 6 out of 53 in terms of world leading and internationally excellent research outputs.

Alan Turing's legacy is even bigger than we realise

Alan Turing is one of the world's best-known mathematicians, and probably the best known in the past century. This is partly for his work on cracking German codes in World War II, and partly for his arrest, conviction and punishment for homosexuality in the 1950s. The mathematics that made him famous, however, rarely gets mentioned.

New mathematical discovery in maximal sum-free sets after a decade of the unknown

One of the most basic concepts in Mathematics is the notion of a sum. That is, a set of three numbers such that two of the numbers add up to the third. For example, 4, 5 and 9 form the sum 4+5=9 whilst 3, 4 and 9 certainly do not form a sum! This concept is one that every school child has seen, yet there still remain many deep and difficult problems in this area.
