Research in the University of Chester's Department of Mathematics is conducted by a growing group of active Mathematicians whose work focuses on Mathematical Modelling, Numerical Analysis, Analysis of PDEs & Stochastic PDEs, Mathematical Biology and Group Algebras and their applications.

All mathematics technical reports and other open-access publications are available on ChesterRep, the University's online research repository.

The Mathematical Sciences Research Group

The group has strong links both with mathematicians in other centres and with researchers in other departments of the university. We have co-workers from across Europe and beyond, forming an expanding network of collaborators. The Mathematics Research Seminar series, organised by the group, provides a forum for members of the group to share their work and for external speakers to present to staff and postgraduate students from the faculty. For further details on the seminar programme, please contact Dimitra Antonopoulou BSc MSc PhD.

Particular research interests of the group include:

  • Mathematical models of the immune system;
  • Analysis and numerical analysis of functional differential equations;
  • Mathematical and Numerical Analysis of Nonlinear Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations (Investigation of Blow-up and Quenching phenomena);
  • Qualitative Analysis of Reaction-Diffusion Systems arising in Mathematical Biology and Ecology (Long-time behaviour and Blow-up phenomena);
  • Analysis of PDEs and Stochastic PDEs;
  • Mathematical Modelling in MEMS technology, Cell dynamics, Ohmic Heating process, Ecology, Cancer modelling;
  • Group algebras and their applications.
