to support Applied mathematics and theoretical physics
Centre for Mathematical Sciences, home of DAMTP
The Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics carries out research of world-class excellence in a broad range of subjects across applied mathematics and theoretical physics.
Research in the Department is loosely organised into eight broad subject areas:
Applied and computational analysis
Fluid and solid mechanics
High energy physics
General relativity and cosmology
Members of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics have made seminal theoretical advances in the development of mathematical techniques and in the application of mathematics combined with physical reasoning to many different areas of science.
The Andrew Chamblin Memorial Lecture Fund was set up in memory of Andrew Chamblin, friend and colleague to many past and present members of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics's Gravitation & Relativity Group, who died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2006 at the early age of 36.
The David Crighton Fellowship is a scheme that provides for three-month visits for young researchers (from overseas or from elsewhere in the UK), to the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, to engage in collaborative research with members of the Department.
The GK Batchelor Lectureship provides for a one-week visit each year by an authority in some branch of fluid mechanics, usually from overseas, to present a keynote fluid mechanics seminar and to interact with members of the Department, particularly with postgraduate students, during the visit.
The Millennium Mathematics Project (MMP) is an award-winning mathematics education and outreach initiative for ages 3 to 19 and the general public. We believe that all young people should have the opportunity to experience a rich, imaginative, challenging mathematical education.
The Edwards Symposia Series showcases the latest developments in soft matter science with a particular emphasis on theoretical and mathematical models, and on how these models can inform industrial processes, materials and design. The Series is in tribute to the life and work of Professor Sir Sam Edwards FRS, one of the great scientific minds of the 20th century.
The Stephen Hawking Programme celebrates and memorialises the life and achievements of the late Professor Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest scientific minds of his generation and a celebrated global leader in the fields of cosmology, astronomy, theoretical physics and mathematics.
With its outstanding track record in research and teaching, the School of the Physical Sciences is home to some of the world's most important work in astronomy, chemistry, earth sciences, geography, materials science, physics, and pure and applied mathematics.
