The research activities in the Unit range from solving abstract problems in pure mathematics to development and practical applications of statistical and computational methods in empirical sciences. The researchers and research groups have active national and international collaboration networks. The topics of research are mainly related to the following special fields:
  • Analysis, including Fractal Geometry, Harmonic Analysis, and Inverse Problems
  • Number Theory
  • Computational Mathematics
  • Statistics and Data Science, for instance Bayesian Analysis, and applications in life sciences and engineering
  • Mathematics education

More detailed information is found in the homepages of the various research groups and also in those of individual researchers.

Two research groups belong to the following national Centres of Excellence (CoE) supported by the Academy of Finland

Colloquium in Mathematical Sciences meets about once every three weeks with presentations of some current research topics by faculty members of the Unit or external visitors. More details are found here.

Doctoral training is an important activity of the Unit. PhD students are supervised by senior faculty members in topics related to their expertise. If you are interested to pursue doctoral studies in Mathematical Sciences at Oulu, you are recommended to contact the leader of the pertinent research group.

The University of Oulu Graduate School (UniOGS) provides the organizational framework for doctoral training. Mathematical Sciences belong to the Technology and Natural Sciences Doctoral Programme (TNS-DP) within UniOGS.
