Our pure mathematics work was ranked by the latest Research Assessment Exercise among the UK’s top five in this field for volume of top-category research.
Many of our staff are the holders of prestigious awards, including the European Mathematical Society Prize, the Whitehead Prize of the London Mathematical Society, the Waclaw Sierpinski Prize of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Berwick Prize of the London Mathematical Society.
Our lecturers have also presented at the International Congress of Mathematicians, and one is currently an EPSRC Leadership Fellow.
Our research centres on four areas:
non-commutative ring theory, especially nil rings, the Jacobson radical, prime and primitive rings, and combinatorial problems in ring theory
non-commutative algebraic geometry, particularly representation theory of noetherian rings and quantum algebras, and the growth properties of finitely-generated algebras over fields
number theory, with a focus on the study of algebraic integers which are confined
representation theory and its applications to algebraic geometry and combinatorics.
