Pure Mathematics Research
The Pure Mathematics division is active in research and has a lively
postgraduate community. In the 2001 Research Assessment
Exercise the Pure Division received a grade of 5, emphasising the
international importance of the research undertaken at St. Andrews.
Main areas of research activity are:
Group theory, semigroup theory, lattice theory, computational group
theory, computational semigroup theory and ordered algebraic
Fractal geometry, multifractal analysis, complex dynamical systems,
Kleinian groups, diophantine approximations, approximation
theory and non-linear diffusion equations.
