Mathematics from Newcastle University proposals in any of our research areas. In Pure Mathematics the two main fields are functional analysis and geometric algebra. In Applied Mathematics the research is predominantly in fluid mechanics, astrophysics and cosmology.


As a research postgraduate in the Mathematics programme from Newcastle University you will be working under the supervision of an expert in your chosen field. To help you identify a topic and potential supervisor, we encourage you to find out more about our staff specialisms.

Research areas

Within each field of Pure Mathematics there are multiple subgroups. In analysis, one subgroup concentrates on operator theory and function theory, the other on Banach algebras, cohomology and modules. In algebra there are subgroups devoted to the study of infinite groups, and finite classical groups and their geometries.
