Welcome to Mathematics in Cambridge

From Newton and earlier to the present day, Cambridge Mathematicians have led the world.

We offer outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, and exceptional PhD programmes.

We carry out research of world class excellence spanning topics in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (at DPMMS), and Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (at DAMTP).

Our innovative education programmes and outreach events support teachers and school students worldwide, and share the excitement of the subject with the public.

New Institute established to tackle climate change

The ground-breaking new Institute of Computing for Climate Science (ICCS) is taking the Faculty's role in tackling climate change into a new era.

Number theory: the excitement of the unexpected

Rong Zhou recently joined DPMMS as a Lecturer. We caught up with him to talk about equations that can’t be solved, surprising connections in number theory, and the energy of the Faculty.

Understanding the diversity of forests using AI

Revolutionary machine learning techniques are being developed by researchers from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) to support forest conservation in India.

Investing in mathematical connections

Ailsa Keating, from the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, has been awarded a prestigious Starting Grant from the European Research Council to further her research into the symmetries of symplectic spaces.

Raising the next generation of problem-solvers

The Faculty's NRICH mathematics education project focuses on developing problem-solving, and is celebrating 25 years of support for schools, teachers, students and parents.

Curbing COVID-19 in schools

UK schools have received more than 300,000 CO2 monitors as part of a government initiative supported by researchers from DAMTP to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We collaborate and consult with business, industry, governments, NGOs, charities, and fellow teachers and academics. We recruit worldwide. We value our alumnae and alumni.
