The course allows specialisation in areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics or statistics and allows the flexibility to cover a range of areas or to concentrate in one specific area. There are a range of taught modules to choose from, which provide the opportunity to combine mainstream, advanced mathematical topics and innovative methods selected from the research interests of the School of Mathematics. Modules in pure mathematics concentrate on the areas of functional analysis, ring theory, differental geometry and mathematical logic. Applied modules cover areas including mathematical methods, fluid dynamics, integrable systems and numerical analysis. Statistical topics available include statistical computing, regression methods and time series.
