Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

Mathematics is an enabling discipline that underpins science, engineering and technology.

The Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (CIAM) brings together researchers in pure and applied mathematics to discover, understand and interpret natural phenomena and apply mathematics to important industrial and social problems.

The Centre also seeks to develop new research strengths in mathematics and statistics and train the next generation of mathematical scientists.

CIAM research themes include:

  • Mathematical analysis
  • Modelling of systems and processes
  • Optimisation and optimal control
  • Signal and image processing
  • Scheduling and control for transportation systems and water management
  • Financial mathematics and risk management

Each theme provides a focus for specialist mathematical research and consulting in particular fields of industrial and applied mathematics.
