Pure Mathematics

The principal research activity in pure mathematics at Lancaster over the last 20 years has concerned mathematical analysis and a strong international reputation has been established in this field.

During the last five years, an algebra group of similar strength has been created and recent new posts have established a probability group too. In addition, a group at the interface between algebra, analysis and combinatorics study geometric rigidity theory.

We also have links with researchers across the UK and internationally, through research networks such as

as well as more informal connections and collaborations.
