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.

Professor John D Barrow FRS, 1952 - 2020

The Faculty is deeply saddened by the death of Professor John D Barrow FRS on 26th September, 2020. 

Artificial intelligence takes on COVID-19

A collaboration between mathematicians at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) and clinicians and researchers from around the world is developing an AI tool to help with diagnosing COVID-19 and making prognoses for infected patients.

Finding a way out of lockdown

The Soft Matter Research Group at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) has put aside its usual work to fight COVID-19 and help the UK find a way out of the lockdown.

Social distancing: How close is safe?

As the world gradually emerges from lockdown, fluid dynamicists at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) are investigating how to keep safe as we move about our daily lives.

Using machine learning to help hospitals manage capacity

A recent partnership between a research group at the Department for Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) and the NHS aims to help hospitals manage capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Two members of the Faculty elected Fellows of the Royal Society

Congratulations to Professor Hugh Osborn and Professor Jack Thorne on their election as Fellows of the Royal Society

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.

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