The best thing about this programme is the great mathematics options. I was able to choose modules in analysis, my favourite area, which were interesting and fit together well. The classes are small, which means I really got to know classmates and lecturers; and the individual project was a chance to study current research, something I never got to do at undergraduate level.
The social benefits of studying in London are great. My favourite place to go is King's own Waterfront bar, which has impressive views over the Thames and legendary curly fries!
I am a member of the King's Analysis group which is one of the most active and successful Analysis groups in the UK. Much of our research is related to operator theory and differential equations, and in particular to spectral theory and its applications. We collaborate with researchers in many countries including Canada, Chile, France, Georgia, Germany, Israel, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, and US. Members of our group have co-organised several high profile international conferences. Together with colleagues from Imperial College, University College and Queen Mary College, we run the London Analysis Seminar. We also co-organise the Paris-London Analysis Seminar. In Pure Mathematics, our Department also has outstanding research groups in Geometry and in Number Theory. On the applied side, the research strength of the Department lies in the following three fields: Disordered Systems, Financial Mathematics, and Theoretical Physics.
King's graduates are highly sought after both nationally and internationally in research institutions and higher education as well as in a wide range of professions.
