Division of Mathematical Sciences

Published: 10 January 2012

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

Mathematical Statistics is the science that describes and analyzes random processes and evaluates the data with an element of random variation. The statistical inference develops methods, principles and criteria for processing data, using models that are studied in probability theory.
