Course summary

The Applied and Computational Mathematics research group combines expertise in dynamics, classical and statistical mechanics and advanced scientific computing techniques, to develop techniques for applications such as molecular dynamics, geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics and optoelectronics. The School's EPSRC funded Mathematical Modelling, Analysis and Computation (MAC-MIGS) Centre for Doctoral Training is based within the Applied and Computational Mathematics group. Applicants interested in this area are strongly encouraged to apply to this PhD programme as well. Further information about the CDT can be found at on the MAC-MIGS website. If you have a passion for applied mathematics, our facilities, people and environment will help you develop your research ideas to their full potential. The School of Mathematics is a vibrant community of more than 60 academic and related staff supervising 60 students. Our research interests are varied and include:

  • astrophysical fluid dynamics
  • multiscale modelling and analysis
  • molecular dynamics
  • mathematical meteorology
  • Hamiltonian dynamics
  • nonlinear waves in fluids and solids
  • optoelectronics
  • signal processing
  • mathematical biology
  • exponential asymptotics
  • homogenisation theory
