About the MMC
Founded in 1999, the University of Leicester's Centre for Mathematical Modelling (MMC) unites researchers with shared interests in advanced modelling and simulation methods.
Cutting across traditional disciplinary boundaries, the MMC organizes a broad-based research colloquium series, funds visiting scholars and small workshops on Centre-related themes, and hosts an annual Distinguished Lectureship.
The MMC coordinates shared high performance computing resources for the University of Leicester. In 2005 we installed a new 160 cpu AMD Opteron cluster system.
In Summer 2003, the MMC moved to new quarters in the Michael Atiyah Building (named after a leading mathematician who was also, until recently, the chancellor the University of Leicester). The building is adjacent to the University's Space Research Centre and overlooks Leicester'sVictoria Park.
