Mathematics of Symmetry and Computation

Leveraging mathematics for the benefit of all scientific disciplines

Mathematics of Symmetry and Computation explores the abstract concepts that provide the foundations for developments in applied mathematics, science and technology. Research in this area underpins the tools and techniques applied mathematicians, scientists and engineers use to find solutions to real-world problems.

The Mathematics of Symmetry and Computation Research Cluster at UWA brings together an internationally recognised team of pure mathematicians with a diverse skill set. By fostering a highly collaborative style of working and combining individual strengths, the group produces extraordinary results.

Research opportunities are available for students. If you would like to submit an expression of interest for a research opportunity, fill out our form or email [email protected] for more information.

The Centre for the Mathematics of Symmetry and Computation expertise includes:

  • Finite group theory
  • Group actions
  • Algebraic graph theory
  • Algebraic combinatorics
  • Matroid theory
  • Finite geometry
  • Algorithm design
  • Graph theory
  • Simple groups
  • Matrix groups

Other expertise in Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics includes:

  • Differential geometry
  • Ergodic theory
  • Approximation theory
  • Spectral theory
  • Inverse Scattering


Mathematics is the foundation of technology, and important advances in mathematics are underpinned by the deep abstract foundational work of pure mathematics. Just as theoretical physics is important to experimental physics, pure mathematics is the basis for all scientific disciplines.

  • Matrix Groups and Computational Group Theory
  • Permutation Groups
  • Graph Theory (Structure and Symmetry)
  • Finite Geometry and Buildings
  • Matroid Theory
