Pure Mathematics

Research in Pure Mathematics has a long and distinguished history at Newcastle University.

Our most current research is in the areas of complex analysis, homological algebra and representation theory, geometric group theory, operator theory and operator algebras, and topological homology. 

Research groups

Current research is concentrated in the following research areas:

More information can be found on the personal pages of individual researchers. It is in those areas that we are able to take on PhD students.

Seminars and networks

We have two weekly seminars, covering Functional Analysis and Algebra and Geometry. About three times a term we put on a more general colloquium.

We are active members of three regional seminar series: 

All of these series are funded by the London Mathematical Society. The NBGGT seminar is coordinated from Newcastle, and is also funded by EMS.

We are one of nodes of CoDiMa (CCP in the area of Computational Discrete Mathematics) network which is run by Prof S Linton, University of St Andrews. For more information, visit the University of St Andrews Computer Science Blog.
