DAMTP research groups

The Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) is one of two Mathematics Departments at the University of Cambridge, the other being the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS). The two Departments together constitute the Faculty of Mathematics, and are responsible for the teaching of Mathematics and its applications within the Mathematical Tripos.


DAMTP currently has about 50 academic staff, about 85 postdoctoral staff and about 110 research students, supported by about 30 administrative, technical and secretarial staff. The current Head of Department, since 2005, is Professor Peter Haynes.
