Pure Mathematics

Pure mathematics


Pure mathematics research underpins the tools and techniques that applied mathematicians, scientists and engineers use to find solutions to real-world problems.

Our research group brings together an internationally recognised team of pure mathematicians with a diverse skill set. By fostering a highly collaborative style of working and combining our individual strengths, we are able to produce extraordinary results.

Problems that we solve

The expertise of the Pure Mathematics group covers:

  • Finite group theory
  • Group actions
  • Algebraic graph theory
  • Algebraic combinatorics
  • Matroid theory
  • Finite geometry
  • Algorithm design
  • Graph theory

Engineering for Remote Operations (ERO)

  • We have a wide range of expertise within pure mathematics that can be used to help members of ERO research groups in understanding and using modern mathematical tools that have started to appear in the applied sciences. Mathematics is the foundation of technology, and important advances in mathematics are underpinned by the deep abstract foundational work of pure mathematics. Just as theoretical physics is important to experimental physics, pure mathematics is the basis for all scientific disciplines.
