Research Centre in Mathematics
Welcome to the Research Centre in Mathematics.
The Research Centre in Mathematics is comprised of three research groups: the Applied Mathematics Group, the Mathematical Physics Group and the Representation Theory Group.
The Research Centre in Mathematics is comprised of:
Applied Mathematics Group
The Applied Mathematics Group applies mathematical methods to increase our understanding of biological and physical phenomena.
The group has three main areas of research: evolutionary game theory, network science and fluid dynamics. It also hosts regular short term research visitors.
Mathematical Physics Group
The Mathematical Physics Group research activities are concentrated on topics in quantum field theory, quantum mechanics and string theory..
Our extensive expertise in various techniques and methods, developed originally in the context of integrable systems, creates a unique cohesive and vigorous environment.
Representation Theory Group
The Representation Theory Group is interested in all aspects of modern representation theory. The focus is on gaining deep conceptual understanding of algebraic, combinatorial, geometric and topological structure.
The main areas of interest are:
- Finite dimensional algebras symmetric groups and Hecke algebras
- Representations of finite and algebraic groups
- Brauer and other diagram algebras
- Triangulated categories and dg categories
- Fusion systems
- Operads and homotopy algebras.
