School of Mathematics

Language

In Trinity College we just have one Department of Pure and Applied Mathematics. Just as Pure Mathematics covers a multitude of areas, such as Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Topology etc, so Applied Mathematics covers Theoretical Physics, Computing, Numerical Analysis etc. Courses in all of these areas, plus Statistics and even Economics are available to mathematics students, so when we use the word mathematics' we do so in a very broad sense.
Specialisation, long seen as dooming mathematics with a multiplicity of separate disciplines, led to deeper understanding and a new unity in mathematics.'' Bers
