Research at the department is done on a wide variety of topics. Ranging from pure curiosity driven research to very practical investigations with direct applications to our society. Most of this research falls in the following main themes:

 - Algebra and Number Theory
 - Differential Topology
 - Dynamical Systems
 - Probability and Statistics
 - Analytics and Optimization
 - Biomathematics

We note that in practice this is not a strictly disjoint division and cross fertilisation happens between many of these fields. Moreover, some of the research under Pure also has applied aspects, and vice versa for the research under Applied. In the research themes mentioned under Bridges we develop fundamental new mathematics as well as apply this to real world problems.

We furthermore participate in Collaborations.
