Course content

Our group is one of the top two centres in the UK for research in the field of analysis. Your passion for this highly specialised discipline will be rewarded by world-leading academic staff, a rich seminar and working group programme and a qualification that shows you have the ability to approach research at the most advanced level.

We have a unique focus on the intersection of classical Euclidian harmonic analysis and partial differential equations.

Our specialisms are:

  • PDEs – elliptic and parabolic problems, especially in relation to rough domains and minimal regularity

  • nonlinear hyperbolic equations and systems, especially in relation to black holes and general relativity

  • nonlinear hyperbolic and dispersive problems in mathematical physics and mathematical biology, null form estimates, kinetic equations and chemotaxis.

We also look at the connections between harmonic analysis and geometry, number theory and combinatronics, and stochastic analysis.
