Mathematics at Bangor

Latest News and Events


Prof Lucy Kuncheva has today been elected as a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales.

Lucy is just one of four people from Bangor University to be made a fellow in 2015.


With great regret we report the passing of our colleague Dr John Bowen Hughes (always known as "J.B.") on 28th February.  A tribute meeting was held at Neuadd Goronwy Owen in Benllech on March 12th.

He was a member of the Applied Mathematics Department from (roughly) the 1960s to the 1990s.  His initial research interests were in quantum mechacnics, and he later developed an interest in operational research, introducing several undergraduate courses in that area. 

(We hope to include more detailed information in due course: all contributions are welcome.)

Mathematics was one of the founding departments when the University opened in 1884.

Having been a Department of Mathematics; then separate Departments of Pure and Applied Mathematics; and later a School of Mathematics; it's final form was as the Mathematics Division in the School of Informatics.

When the University was reorganised into Colleges in August 2006, what was left of Mathematics became part of the new School of Computer Science. The final cohort of Mathematics graduates obtained their degrees in July 2007.

When Mathematics was closed, the university expressed the hope that this was a temporary measure. The new vice-chancellor, Prof. John Hughes, has stated his firm intention to resurrect the School of Mathematics in due course.

A number of retired staff retain honorary research positions, and this site aims to be an archive of past and current research.

It also provides links to Popularisation activities, such as the Centre for the Popularisation of Mathematics and the Royal Institution Mathematics Masterclasses in North-West Wales.
