Our research is concerned with solving challenging equations that describe interesting and important problems.
As well as conducting research in the foundations of applied mathematics, the department also undertakes research in a variety of multidisciplinary settings. It has excellent connections with many other disciplines, including pure mathematics and statistics, astronomy, biology, computer science, earth sciences, engineering, environment, food science and physics within the University, as well as links with industry.
Our current research areas include:
- Applied nonlinear dynamics
- Astrophysical and geophysical fluid dynamics
- Algebra, geometry and integrable systems
- Mathematical biology and medicine
- Complex materials and industrial mathematics
Research seminars and colloquia
All upcoming applied mathematics seminars can be found in our events section.
- Fluids and MHD seminars
- Integrable Systems seminars
- Leeds Applied Nonlinear Dynamics seminars
- Mathematical Biology and Medicine seminars
