In Mathematics, research is conducted within mathematics including applied mathematics and mathematics education, and is driven by problem settings inspired by real world applications with focus on applied analysis (partial differential equations, multiscale modeling and simulation, functional analysis, kinetic theory and applications, and error correcting codes).

The mathematics education research conducted within the department focuses mainly on technology in mathematics teaching and learning, teachers’ professional development, and early years mathematics. More specifically, several projects are conducted in collaboration with teachers at various school levels concerning the design of mathematical tasks and task environments as well as students’ mathematical reasoning. Research is largely organised within interdisciplinary groups at the university, and in well- established partnerships with research groups at other universities.
