Paul Glendinning is a British mathematician known for his work on dynamical systems, specifically models of the time-evolution of complex mathematical or physical processes. His main areas of research are bifurcation theory (particularly global bifurcations); synchronization and blowout bifurcations; low dimensional maps; and quasi-periodically forced systems.

He gained his PhD from King's College, Cambridge in 1985 with a thesis entitled Homoclinic Bifurcations under the supervision of Nigel Weiss.

After post-doctoral research at the University of Warwick, he returned to Cambridge, with a Junior Research Fellowship at King's. In 1987 he moved to Gonville and Caius College as Director of Studies in Applied Mathematics. In 1992 he won the Adams Prize. In 1996 he was appointed to a chair at Queen Mary and Westfield College, London and then to a chair at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology in 2000.

In 2004 the Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST merged and he was appointed as head of the School of Mathematics formed by the merger of the Mathematics Departments in the former institutions.

He is on the Editorial Board of the European Journal of Applied Mathematics and the journal Dynamical Systems.

Glendinning is married and lives in Marsden, West Yorkshire. He is the son of the writer and broadcaster Victoria Glendinning.
