Our research

To solve the insoluble – world-leading research in pure and applied mathematics and statistics.

The research areas of the Department comprise Algebra; Combinatorics; Functional and Harmonic Analysis; Geometry and Mathematical Physics; and Number Theory.

We attract a high level of external research funding and provide a lively environment for postgraduate and postdoctoral study in mathematics and statistics. Our research groups are interconnected, with frequent interactions between groups and with other schools and faculties both within and outside UNSW.
