here for information on the software which generated this image 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 year-long EPSRC-funded 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.
