GeometryGeometry lies at the core of modern mathematics with deep and wide implications
in other mathematical disciplines, pure and applied. For example, geometry is
used in cryptology, medical imaging, and physics. Geometry draws on methods from
algebra, differential equations, and topology to investigate spaces ranging from
our own 3dimensional space to abstract spaces that can have infinitely many
dimensions. The School of Mathematical Sciences has an active group of
researchers in geometry with an international reputation. Researcher  Interests
