The Warwick Mathematics Institute was
founded in 1965 by Professor Sir Christopher Zeeman, FRS, and since that
time has gone from strength to strength. In the 2001 research assessment
exercise (RAE) Applied Mathematics was rated 5* (one of only three
groupings to be awarded double 5* status by HEFCE) and Pure Mathematics
5. In previous RAEs the Department received the highest ratings
possible. In December 2003 the Institute moved from the Gibbet Hill east
site to the new £15M Zeeman Building on the main campus (shared
with Statistics). The rate of expansion is such that a £3M
extension is now being designed with a planned opening date of Easter
2008. Currently there are about 50
permanent staff covering a large area
of of pure and applied mathematics.
The Mathematics
Research Centre (MRC) (Director: Professor Miles Reid, FRS) plans
and organises the visitor programme and especially the yearlong EPSRCfunded
research symposia which have run since the beginning in 1965. These
attract mathematicians from all over the world. Mathematical
Interdisciplinary Research at Warwick (MIR@W) (Director: Professor
Robert MacKay, FRS) was created to stimulate mathematical research into
scientific problems throughout the University and to provide
postgraduate training across subject boundaries. It involves 11
departments: Biological Sciences, Business School, Chemistry, Computer
Science, Economics, Education, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics,
Psychology and Statistics. MIR@W activitivities have seeded many of the
Department's now substantial interdisciplinary activities listed below,
particularly in Mathematical Biology, Complexity Science and
Computing.
