Applied Mathematics

What we do

Research activities in our group cover a wide range of topics, many related to:

  • differential equations – ordinary
  • partial and stochastic - and dynamical systems, with use in continuum mechanics
  • electromagnetism and statistical mechanics

There are applications to:

  • oil-reservoir modelling
  • geophysical systems
  • combustion
  • phase transitions and free-boundary problems
  • and to more general industrial and social modelling

The mathematical methods employed include:

  • asymptotics
  • dynamical-system techniques
  • analysis and numerical methods

We have close links with:

  • Computational Mathematics
  • Mathematical Biology & Ecology
  • Mathematical Physics
  • Analysis & PDEs
  • Probability & Statistics

Regular seminars are organised for postgraduate students and staff.
