Course content

The London School of Geometry and Number Theory (LSGNT) is an EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) and is a joint venture between UCL, King's College London and Imperial College London. It offers a wide range of research projects in different aspects of number theory, geometry and topology.

Mathematics research at UCL is flourishing with significant funding from EPSRC, ERC, the Royal Society and industry. The department is a member of the UCL Institute of Origins, Centre for Inverse Problems, and CoMPLEX (Centre of Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences and Experimental Biology); it hosts the Clinical Operational Research Unit and has 20 postdoctoral researchers including the Clifford Fellow. Students benefit from our leading role in the inter-university London Taught Course Centre for PhD Students in the Mathematical Sciences.
