Mathematics research


The research interests of the group focus mainly on PDEs, operator theory and spectral theory. The group has an exceptional research track record, wide ranging collaborations, and excellent PhD completion rate. The central location of King's College London gives the group additional benefits of being at the heart of the London Analysis community.


disordered Systems

The Disordered Systems group at King's is at the forefront of research in statistical mechanics of disordered and complex systems. The research of the group concentrates on the development of new methods to tackle both fundamental issues, for example in non-equilibrium systems, and a broad range of applications to complex systems of many interacting units.

Financial Mathematics - Canary Wharf

Financial Mathematics

King’s college has a large and thriving Financial Mathematics group, with an international reputation for research excellence.
Based in Central London in close proximity to the City of London, King’s has fostered strong links with industry practitioners and offers state of the art facilities, including a suite of high performance Bloomberg terminals as used on real trading floors and other advanced computing facilities.

Research in Mathematics


The research of Geometry group members covers areas in algebraic geometry, differential geometry, geometric analysis, Lie theory and quantum groups. The group offers PhD projects in geometry and contributes to the MSc in Mathematics. It runs a weekly geometry seminar at King's College and together with Imperial College London and Queen Mary University of London organizes the London Geometry and Topology Seminar. Individual group members are involved in research activities and collaborations within the UK and abroad.


number theory

King's College London has a strong tradition of research in number theory and this continues today with a particular emphasis on algebraic and representation-theoretic aspects of the subject. Staff are at the forefront of research in areas attracting international interest. Recent projects have involved collaboration with workers in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Canada, the United States, China, South Korea, Taiwan and Australia.


theoretical physics

The Theoretical Physics group is at the forefront of research in supersymmetry, string and M- theory and related areas. It currently has eleven permanent members together with postdoctoral researchers and graduate students. The group also runs several seminar series and regularly hosts workshops and conferences and participates in UK and International research networks.
