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 over the coming months, with the following tentative timetable:

  • existing mathematicians already within the university formed into a 'virtual' school;
  • new appointments made;
  • start specialised masters programmes in September 2015;
  • undergraduate programmes to follow.

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.
