Geometry lies at the core of modern mathematics with deep and wide implications in other mathematical disciplines, pure and applied. For example, geometry is used in cryptology, medical imaging, and physics.

Geometry draws on methods from algebra, differential equations, and topology to investigate spaces ranging from our own 3-dimensional space to abstract spaces that can have infinitely many dimensions.

The School of Mathematical Sciences has an active group of researchers in geometry with the pure mathematics discipline receiving an ERA=5 score, rating well above world standard. For more information see the Institute for Geometry and its Applications.
