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 organises workshops, seminars and conferences on Centre-related themes.

In Summer 2003, the MMC moved to new quarters in the Michael Atiyah Building (named after a leading mathematician who was also, the chancellor the University of Leicester). The building is adjacent to the University's Space Research Centre and overlooks Leicester'sVictoria Park.
