Minimum 2:1 (or equivalent), ideally with a significant project component indicating aptitude for research in the History of Mathematics.
Months of entry
The History of Mathematics Group, housed in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, conducts internationally recognised work in several areas of the history of modern mathematics, and collaborates with many historians of mathematics in Europe. A long-running interest in celestial mechanics has recently led to an investigation of the network of astronomers in the years around 1900, and an overlapping international project on the role of mathematics and mathematicians in the First World War. Another project concerns the work of G.D. Birkhoff and the development of topological dynamics.
