Course content

The Applied and Computational Mathematics group combines expertise in dynamics, classical and statistical mechanics and advanced scientific computing techniques, to develop techniques for applications such as stellar and molecular dynamics, geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics and optoelectronics. If you have a passion for applied mathematics, our facilities, people and environment will help you develop the full potential of your research ideas.

Our research interests are varied and include:

  • stellar dynamics
  • astronomical fluid dynamics
  • multiscale modelling and analysis
  • molecular dynamics
  • mathematical meteorology
  • Hamiltonian dynamics
  • nonlinear waves in fluids and solids
  • unsteady free boundary problems
  • optoelectronics
  • signal processing
  • exponential asympotics
  • homogenisation theory
