Mathematics in Uppsala
The Department of Mathematics at Uppsala University is constantly growing. Since the nineties, our research has multiplied and now covers a wide range of topical areas of mathematics. The diversity of our research is also reflected in our undergraduate programmes, where we focus on both allaround mathematical education and indepth knowledge.

Research in mathematics
The mathematical research in Uppsala has traditionally been dominated by analysis. You may have heard of Lennart Carleson who was awarded the Abel Prize or Arne Beurling who cracked the cipher machine Geheimschreiber during World War II. They were both very prominent in harmonic analysis. But during the 1990s, an internationalisation of the mathematical research in Uppsala took place and it has grown since, both in terms of the number of researchers and research areas.
Going to the Roots of Mathematical Trees
Cecilia Holmgren was the first to prove theorems that describe the split trees’ general properties. Read more about how she breaks ground in probability theory.
Study Mathematics
Do you enjoy mathematics and want to take your skills to the next level? As a student at the Master's Programme in Mathematics in Uppsala you will gain deeper insights in most major and modern areas of mathematics. The programme has three specialisations: applied mathematics and statistics, financial mathematics and mathematics.
Postgraduate Studies in Mathematics
If you want to do research in mathematics, then a postgraduate programme is a first step in the right direction. To enter our programme, you need a Master’s degree in mathematics, or a Master’s degree in engineering physics. On our website, we usually advertise vacant PhD positions which all eligible candidates are welcome to apply. The advert will be posted in February.

Centre for Interdisciplinary Mathematics (CIM)
The Centre for Interdisciplinary Mathematics in Uppsala facilitates novel and exciting joint research between the mathematical sciences and other disciplines and industry. The aim is to engage mathematics directly in science by using mathematics to understand real world systems.
