The research on the Department of Applied Mathematics is managed by three research groups. They correspond to the three main research topics: Numerical analysis with particular emphasis on computational frameworks, Applied probability and statistics espacially stochastic reliability and risk modelling of complex systems, and mathematical Analysis, espacially focused on boundary element methods, application of discrete mathematics and dynamical systems. 

Cooperation acros research groups is strongly encouraged, not only within the university, but across various areas related to applied mathematics, including cooperation with industry. Moreover, the research groups help to maintain the scope of theses and dissertaitions up-to-date so that the topics correspond to current research level.
