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.

The MMC is located in the Michael Atiyah Building (named after a leading mathematician who was also the chancellor the University of Leicester). Director of the MMC is Professor Alexander N Gorban.
