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.


Black History Month at the CMS

In October the Faculty joined Black History Month celebrations with an event showcasing the contributions of black mathematicians.

Stephen Siklos, 1950-2019

The Faculty is deeply saddened by the death of Stephen Siklos on 17th August, 2019. He was a former lecturer at DAMTP, Faculty Admissions Officer for many years, and known to thousands of students as the face of STEP.

Helping men with early prostate cancer

A new online tool developed by the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication, based in DPMMS, helps men with prostate cancer decide on their treatment options.

Cambridge Perspectives: Anne-Christine Davis and the mysteries of the cosmos

In this video Davis tells us about some of her favourite pieces of research in theoretical physics and cosmology, what it was like to be a female pioneer, and what she is planning for the future.

Charmed beauty confirms particle theory

Researchers at DAMTP helped correctly predict the mass of a particle over six years before it was discovered at CERN earlier this year. Their research confirms existing particle theory, but also opens the door to new physics.

Into the stratosphere

To predict the Earth's climate and weather you need to understand the fluid dynamics of atmosphere and oceans. Professor Peter Haynes, recently elected a Fellow of the Royal society, is one of the mathematicians who provide this crucial understanding.

Information and the laws of physics

Professor Richard Jozsa, who has recently been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, studies the link between physics and information. His work laid the foundations of quantum computation and information and probes  fundamental  quantum theory.

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