Mathematical Sciences

95% of our research outputs are rated as world leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*) and 90% of our research impact is rated as outstanding (4*) or very considerable (3*).

Mathematical Sciences research at the University of Liverpool spans from its traditional core to its interdisciplinary interfaces with medicine, biology, materials science, finance and physics.

We have a wide and varied research portfolio. Over the past six years we have solved fundamental questions in pure mathematics that had remained unsolved for decades; participated in ground-breaking work on the physics of the universe at CERN and Fermilab; and discovered advanced materials with new properties. We have established the Liverpool Centre for Mathematics in Healthcare, which conducts multidisciplinary research to explore how mathematics and statistics can deliver accurate predictive models and tools for health, and we have pioneered new techniques in medical imaging and epidemic modelling

We regularly publish our research in high-quality journals and our externally-funded research projects have attracted more than £6 million in research income over the last six years from funders, including Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, Science and Technology Facilities Council, Medical Research Council, Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the Leverhulme Trust and the European Commission.  We have a long history of successful outreach and public engagement, and are committed to sharing our research with new generations of mathematicians. We are proud partners of the University of Liverpool Maths School and the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
