There is a wide spectrum of research, in eight main research areas. The pure mathematics subject area at Swansea was rated 5 in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise and the Department will expand considerably in the coming years.
The University has one of the finest mathematics libraries in the UK, which houses an extensive collection of books and periodicals.
The Department has a reading room that contains an impressive collection of research books and recent preprints, which are available to staff and students of the Department.
There are good IT facilities for postgraduate research students with a small lab providing drop-in facilities for MSc students. TeX and Mathematica are available on all desktop iMacs.
Schools and Workshops for Postgraduates, given by world-class mathematicians, are offered on a regular basis at Swansea.
Throughout the year there are regular seminars and colloquia given by staff and visitors to the Swansea department.
We benefit from considerable EPSRC support for extended research visits by distinguished mathematicians from abroad.
