Research in mathematics

Our mathematical research is particularly strong in different forms of analysis, analytic number theory, algebra, topology, geometry and probability theory. One of the more distinctive areas is symplectic geometry, that has a close connection to the quantum and string theory. Other areas in which we conduct research in mathematics are mathematical biology, financial mathematics, mathematical logic and mathematical statistics.

Broschyr om vår forskning

För att visa vilka möjligheter som finns för den som vill ägna sig åt matematisk forskning har institutionen tagit fram en broschyr. Den riktar sig i första hand till studenter på grund- och fortsättningsnivå som står i begrepp att besluta vilken riktning de vill gå i.

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.

Centre for Interdisciplinary Mathematics (CIM)

Fish shoal on the bottom of the sea

The Centre for Interdisciplinary Mathematics in Uppsala facilitates novel and exciting joint research between the mathematical sciences and other disciplines and industry. The aim is to engage mathematics directly in science by using mathematics to understand real world systems.
