We are based in the Colin Maclaurin Building on the Edinburgh Campus.

Welcome to the Department

We are part of the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University.

We are also part of the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences, the joint research institute of mathematical sciences at Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh Universities, with excellent results in the UK-wide research assessment 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

Some recent Maxwell Institute projects:

  • Centre for Analysis and Nonlinear PDEs (CANPDE)
  • Centre for Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software (NAIS)

We co-founded and continue to manage the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences jointly with the University of Edinburgh.
