Mathematics Research at Warwick


The outcomes of Research Excellence Framework REF2021 have been published. Read all about the excellent results for Warwick Mathematical Sciences.

The Warwick Mathematics Institute was founded in 1965 by Professor Sir Christopher Zeeman, FRS, and since that time has gone from strength to strength. In December 2003 the Institute moved from the Gibbet Hill site to the new £15M Zeeman Building on the main campus. The rate of expansion is such that a £3M extension was opened in the summer of 2008. In 2018 the £26m Mathematical Sciences Building was opened providing spaces for interdisciplinary collaboration with the Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Sciences departments. Currently there are about 80 permanent staff covering a large area of pure and applied mathematics.

The Mathematics Research Centre (MRC) (Director: Professor Keith Ball FRS, FRSE) plans and organises the visitor programme attracting 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.
