Course content

The MRes in Stochastic Processes is delivered through optional modules for the taught course, followed by a substantial research project that explicitly contributes to the field, rather than applies existing knowledge. Your stochastic processes project will be shaped by participation in research activities such as seminars, workshops, laboratory activity and field work, as well as your involvement in one of our established research groups. Our research groups include:

• Algebra and Topology Areas of interest – noncommutative geometry, categorical methods in algebra and topology, homotopy theory and homological algebra.

• Analysis and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations Areas of interest – reaction-diffusion and reaction-diffusion-convection, equations and systems, Navier–Stokes equations in fluid dynamic.

• Stochastic Analysis Areas of interest – functional inequalities and applications, Lévy-type processes, stochastic modelling of fractal, multifractal and multiscale systems.

• Mathematical methods in Biology and Life Sciences Areas of interest – mathematical pharmacology; heat and mass transfer models for plant cooling; modelling cellular signal transduction dynamics, mathematical oncology.

Information for international students

Since its foundation in 1920, Swansea University has embraced opportunities to think globally. The vibrant mix of nationalities and cultures on campus greatly enriches our learning and teaching environment. We understand the type of support our international students need to help them settle into student life in a new country.
