Departmental Profile
The Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics
houses a number of research groups and individual activities
which, in total, cover a large part of the mathematical
spectrum. Examples are: cosmology and relativity,
computational and applied mechanics, marine resource
assessment and management, rangeland modelling,
industrial mathematics, foundational aspects of computer
science, topology, category theory, nonlinear mathematical
physics, functional analysis, cryptography, string theory,
financial mathematics and algebra. The Department has
active research collaboration with other groups in the country
and abroad. There is a strong postgraduate program, with
M.Sc. and Ph.D. students in a variety of fields. A number
of staff have NRF A-ratings and B-ratings. The Department
has a good technical and administrative infrastructure, and
regularly hosts visitors from abroad. More information can be
