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
  • Astrophysics
  • Geophysics
  • Fluid and solid mechanics
  • Mathematical biology
  • Quantum information
  • 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.

Opportunities in 'Applied mathematics and theoretical physics'

Andrew Chamblin and DAMTP
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.
Supporting world-class research and teaching in data science, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.
Professor David Crighton and DAMTP
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.
G K Batchelor and DAMTP
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.
Isaac Newton Institute of Mathematical Sciences
The Isaac Newton Institute is the UK's national research institute for mathematics.
Centre for Mathematical Sciences, home of DAMTP
The Jubilee Fund supports the Department's research students, who are as vital to the future success of DAMTP as they have been in the past.
A boy at a Millennium Mathematics Project event
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.
