Mathematics in Uppsala

The Department of Mathematics at Uppsala University is constantly growing. Since the nineties, our research has multiplied and now covers a wide range of topical areas of mathematics. The diversity of our research is also reflected in our undergraduate programmes, where we focus on both all-around mathematical education and in-depth knowledge.

New investment in mathematical research

Their ability to describe motion of liquids and gases makes them useful in a variety of applications. Yet there’s no one who fully understands the Navier-Stokes equations. Large parts of their nature remain a mystery. But that’s something that Denis Gaidashev, researcher in mathematics, intends to change

World renowned researcher in dynamical systems visits Uppsala

The world renowned researcher in dynamical systems, John Guckenheimer, will give lectures at the yearly Celsius-Linné symposium in February.

Postgraduate Studies in Mathematics

If you want to do research in mathematics, then a postgraduate programme is a first step in the right direction. To enter our programme, you need a master's degree in mathematics, or a master's degree in engineering physics. On our website, we usually advertise vacant PhD positions which all eligible candidates are welcome to apply. The advert will be posted in February.
