Centre for Mathematics
The Research Centre for Mathematics carries out world-class research in applied mathematics, pure mathematics, and statistics. Within applied mathematics, our research has three major themes: fluid dynamics and acoustics; solid dynamics and elasticity; and biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering. Much of this research has great relevance to contemporary human aairs, for example the environment, internet security, and health.
A unifying aspect of our research is the theory of waves and stability in continuous media. This theory is of fundamental importance both in the development of new mathematical methods, and in explaining the world around us. Our research work has unlimited applications in engineering, biology, and medicine.
