Mathematics, Mathematical Statistics and the research subject Scientific Computing is part of the Division of Mathematical Sciences. A unit with a strong common commitment to first-cycle (undergraduate) courses and study programmes.
The research and third-cycle (doctoral) education in mathematics is conducted primarily in the fields of partial differential equations and functional analysis with applications to eg tribology, fluid mechanics, composite mechanics and construction technology. Research is also done in the areas of mathematical physics and variation methods.
Mathematical Statistics is the science that describes and analyzes random processes and evaluate the data with an element of random variation. Since 2003, Mathematical Statistics with specialization industrial statistics exists as a research- and third-cycle subject area at Luleå University of Technology. Professorship in the subject was established March 2004.
The field of scientific computing aims to use and develop
algorithms / methods to solve and analyze difficult computational problems by using modern computer technology.
