Course summary


You will conduct world class research for Mathematics at City in topics such as representation theory, mathematical physics or applied mathematics.

The research focus of our representation theory group involves conceptual understanding of algebraic, combinatorial, geometric and topological structure.

If you want to become a specialist in mathematical physics, you may undertake research in topics such as quantum field theory, quantum mechanics and string theory. Our expertise in techniques and methods originally developed within integrable systems creates a uniquely cohesive environment.

You will be embedded in our applied mathematics group if your research interest concerns how mathematical methods and models can be firmly applied to biological, social or fluid systems.

Our key research activities include applications of evolutionarily stable strategy, and the evolution of specific animal behaviour such as kleptoparasitism, evolutionary modelling on networks/graphs and magnetohydrodynamics.

Here you can find some examples listed of recent publications in Mathematics along with examples of PhD thesis in Mathematics.
