Applying mathematics to a variety of disciplines and real-world problems

We produce leading research in specific fields within environmental mathematics, numerical analysis, mathematical physics and mathematical biology.

We organise and carry out our research activity in five research groups.

This group focuses on the structure and dynamics of complex fluids, with polymeric fluids being the overarching theme.

Data assimilation (DA) is used in weather, ocean, and climate science to find the trajectory of a model by combining numerical models with observed data.

Research in Mathematical Biology covers two main themes - Systems Biology, Medicine, Neuroscience and Pharmacology, and Food, Supply Chains & the Environment.

Numerical analysis research in Reading is primarily focused on solving differential equations numerically. The group develops and analyses algorithms in order to model a range of physical phenomena.
