The Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics (AMMP) Section is the largest section in the department, with well over 100 members including permanent academic staff, postdoctoral researchers (several on Fellowships (NERC), Junior Research and Chapman Fellowships), and the largest cohort of PhD students working in a wide range of applied mathematics areas:

  • Applied and Numerical Analysis
  • Applied and Computational Complex Analysis Group
  • Biomathematics Group
  • Complexity & Networks
  • Dynamical Systems
  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Mathematical Physics

Visit our AMMP section research groups webpages for an overview on these areas.

Please bear in mind that it is also common for both members of staff and PhD students to pursue research that does not readily fall under one of the above headings. PhD applicants are encouraged to consult the home pages of our academic team, and contact those whose research areas align with your interest.

The AMMP Section works closely with two EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) and a NERC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP):

The research prominence of AMMP and its national and international standing hinges on the success of our doctoral training environment.  The research environment is vibrant and the Section runs numerous weekly seminars in each of the core areas as well as the Applied Mathematics Colloquia that are less frequent but are high profile events with leading international speakers. In addition, there are numerous formal and informal specialist workshops including seminars organized by doctoral students and postdocs sponsored by the Section and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (there is a SIAM Student Chapter at Imperial, an initiative taken and accomplished by AMMP).
