A workshop featuring 12 leading international researchers (from 7 different countries) as invited speakers has taken place at the School of Mathematical Sciences. This event presented a number of exciting recent developments in the broad field of nonlinear dispersive waves, with a particular emphasis on waves arising in the ocean and atmosphere. The workshop, organised by Dr. David Henry, was run on a hybrid-basis and achieved a global reach of over 60 participants from 17 countries (and 6 continents)—confirming the adage that mathematics is the universal language of science.Read more

A research project led by Dr David Henry, School of Mathematical Sciences, UCC and colleagues in TU Dublin has been awarded €916,000 by Science Foundation Ireland to investigate the science behind a nautical phenomenon once attributed to sea monsters and supernatural powers.
Scientists believe that internal water waves, which are responsible for the so-called ‘dead water’ phenomenon, play a fundamental role in any meaningful description of large-scale dynamics of the ocean. An improved understanding of their behaviour is essential to developing our understanding of ocean circulation, and ocean-atmosphere dynamics, which are in turn fundamental processes underlying climate dynamics.

During Summer 2022, school students from across the country were able to participate in a series of interactive mathematical activities organised by staff and students of the School of Mathematical Sciences. These came as an extension of the UCC Mathematics Enrichment programme, which had run during January – May 2022, with 200 registered participants from secondary schools in the Munster region. The summer activities included two main type of events:
- Maths Camps for Junior cycle secondary school students, run by students Aaron Jacob McGee, Eva Leahy, Thomas Francis Quinlan, Lukas Boschet and David Fox, with planning and support offered by Anca Mustata.
- Mathematics Olympiad Training camps, both onsite and offsite, in preparation for the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). These were offered to students in junior and senior cycle who were the top performers in the Irish Mathematical Olympiad. UCC lecturers Anca and Andrei Mustata contributed both onsite and offsite in Norway.
Below is a more detailed account of these events:Read more

- New study finds that the position of the continents plays a vital role in the distribution of life-supporting oxygen in our oceans.
- The movement of the continents over many millions of years could have triggered mass extinction events and influenced the evolution of marine life.
