Mathematical sciences and statistics
Mathematical sciences research at Macquarie is undertaken in pure and applied mathematics, with strengths in applied mathematics, category theory, harmonic analysis and number theory, and statistics, with strengths in biostatistics, epidemiology and medical statistics, image processing, stochastic finance and time series analysis.
In the most recent Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation, our research in the sub-discipline of computation theory and mathematics received a rating of ‘performance above world standard’ and our research in the sub-discipline of pure mathematics received a rating of ‘performance at world standard.’
Our collaborative research partners include the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre and George Institute for Global Health, and Defence Science and Technology Organisation, Australian Signals Directorate and IBM.
Our research strengths
Our research strengths are concentrated in the areas of:
- applied mathematics
- category theory
- computational statistics
- number theory
- signal and image processing, and
- statistics education
We run a small supercomputer based on Nvidia Tesla boards.
Our research hubs
Macquarie’s mathematical sciences activities support the Centre of Australian Category Theory.
