Financial Mathematics, Operational Research and Statistics Group


Finance, Operational Research and Statistics (FORS) group encompasses applied and theoretical research within three inter-related broad areas of research: financial mathematics, operational research and applied statistics.

The list below highlights a number of the research activities being undertaken, and lists the names of the various members of the group who are active in these areas. For more detailed descriptions of our research as well as other relevant information (collaborations, lists of publications, projects, conference presentations, and so on) please follow the links to the web pages of individual group members.
