The Warwick Mathematics Institute was founded in 1965 by Professor Sir Christopher Zeeman, FRS, and since that time has gone from strength to strength. The results of the 2014 REF (Research Excellence Framework) exercise have now been published, and Warwick Statistics and the Warwick Mathematics Institute together have been ranked 3rd in the UK with more than 90% of our research activity assessed as either internationally excellent or world leading. Our research environment at Warwick is rated by REF 2014 as the very best in the UK for mathematical sciences (achieving the maximum possible score of 100% at 4*). In previous RAEs the Department received the highest ratings possible.
In December 2003 the Institute moved from the Gibbet Hill east site to the new £15M Zeeman Building on the main campus (shared with Statistics). The rate of expansion is such that a £3M extension was opened in the summer of 2008. Currently there are about 60 permanent staff covering a large area of of pure and applied mathematics.
The Mathematics Research Centre (MRC) (Director: Professor Keith Ball FRS, FRSE) plans and organises the visitor programme and especially the year-long EPSRC-funded research symposia which have run since the beginning in 1965. These attract mathematicians from all over the world. Mathematical Interdisciplinary Research at Warwick (MIR@W) (Director: Professor Robert MacKay, FRS) was created to stimulate mathematical research into scientific problems throughout the University and to provide postgraduate training across subject boundaries. It combines Mathematics with 11 other departments: Biological Sciences, Business School, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Education, Engineering, Medical School, Physics, Psychology and Statistics. MIR@W activities have seeded many of the Department's now substantial interdisciplinary activities listed below, particularly in Mathematical Biology, Complexity Science and Computing.
