Mathematical sciences


Research in the mathematical sciences is a key element for the advancement of all areas of science and technology, as well as being a vital area of science in itself. Our aim is to sustain core research capability, while promoting transformative and cross-disciplinary research that has the potential for significant impact.

Circles represent the total value of EPSRC’s current investment (excluding training) in the research area on 01 April 2011. Figures will be updated in the next financial year. The links shown in the diagram highlight the major connections between research areas within the EPSRC research portfolio. The Complexity Science research area is cross-cutting and relevant to many of EPSRC’s themes, as well as having strong input from Mathematical Sciences.

The Mathematical Sciences portfolio will be actively shaped by considering the need to maintain an excellent and effective capability in mathematics and the needs of other disciplines and non-academic research users. In order to do this effectively we will need to reduce support in lower priority areas.

Information at theme level is available in the Introduction and Strategy, with further information at research area level available by selecting the relevant circle in the graphic.



Introduction

EPSRC funds research and training in mathematical sciences to support the health of the discipline and to provide skills and knowledge for future needs.

Small grants, Hodge fellowships, Mathematical sciences training, Theoretical physics, mathematical physics and related areas

Our approach

In developing our initial strategy for shaping capability, we drew on data put together for the International Review of Mathematics in 2010, and the advice of the International Review panel and Mathematical Sciences Strategic Advisory Team.

Strategy

Research in the mathematical sciences is a key element for the advancement of all areas of science and technology, as well as being a vital area of science in itself.

Investing in the future, Maintaining quality and meeting priorities, Addressing the Delivery Plan goals, Planning for the future, Delivery Plan outcomes ...
