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.

Fighting COVID-19

Julia Gog, Professor of Mathematical Biology at DAMTP, is currently helping to lead efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. She tells us more about the mathematical models that deliver the predictions and the questions scientists are grappling with.

A call to action on COVID-19

An urgent call has gone out to the scientific modelling community to help fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Two Cambridge mathematicians are helping to lead the charge.

Communicating a pandemic crisis

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication, based at DPMMS, has been investigating a crucial aspect of the crisis: people's perception of the risk the disease poses and their attitudes to governments' responses.

Building bridges with industry

Mathematics teaching at Cambridge is world-class, but what does the Faculty do to help students find their feet in the world of industry? It enables them to experience it first-hand through the Cambridge Mathematics Placements programme.

Leading DAMTP into the future

Colm-cille Caulfield, new Head of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics tells us about his research, the strengths of DAMTP, and the Department's vision for building on them.

Less is more: The quest for minimal surfaces

Over the last 250 years mathematical objects called minimal surfaces have been playing hide and seek with geometers. Spencer Becker-Kahn is one mathematician who has joined the quest to find them

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