Pure Mathematics Research Centre

The Pure Mathematics Research Centre comprises eight permanent academic staff members and focuses on research in the areas of Functional Analysis, Abstract Harmonic Analysis, Algebraic Topology and Algebra, with strong interdisciplinary connections. It possesses expertise in topics as diverse as stable homotopy theory, model categories, finiteness conditions in algebra and topology, linear dynamics, Banach and operator algebras (in particular ones arising from locally compact groups), Banach lattices, linear preservers, operator space theory and the mathematics of quantum information. Members of the Centre have used functional analytic tools to handle questions in Harmonic Analysis and Graph Theory, algebraic tools to solve problems in topology, and methods from representation theory to describe classes of operator algebras.

For the students in the fourth year (MSci), the Centre offers a range of year long projects in a large number of areas including Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Combinatorics, Graph Theory and Topology. The Centre takes pride in its informal and friendly approach to students, the enthusiasm of its staff members and the intensive links with other leading research centres and academics worldwide.

Please contact the Director of the Centre, Prof. Ivan Todorov ( for any further enquiries.
