School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences

Scientific computing and geometry

We develop and analyse mathematical methods that have applications in computer graphics, physics and engineering. The group's expertise covers a broad spectrum of mathematics, ranging from differential and discrete geometry to numerical analysis and the mathematics of information. We actively engage with industrial partners and colleagues in Engineering, in the Medical Sciences, and at Space Park Leicester to promote cross-disciplinary knowledge exchange and deliver impact.
