Course content

Computational physics is a fundamental area of study that underpins a vast array of topics. This research programme offers the opportunity to work with specialists in the field and the chance to develop strong national and international collaborations.

Researchers in the School of Mathematics and Physics are able to advance their knowledge of computational physics, while developing key research skills.

Research in Computational Physics covers a broad spectrum, including the distinct areas of nanostructured soft matter, active matter, materials science, and molecular biophysics. Dedicated academic supervisors provide in-depth training programmes and students can benefit from the use of specialist computational facilities.

Department specialisms

Staff in the School of Mathematics and Physics conduct leading research in fundamental and applied mathematics and physics, ranging from pure mathematics to applied nanoscience at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics. The School collaborates with top research institutions in Germany, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, and the USA. Our research focuses on four key areas: Algebra, Astrophysics, Computational Physics, and Experimental Nanophysics. The School is home to the Centre for Computational Physics, with research encompassing computational and theoretical physics as well as applied mathematics of nano-structured soft matter, solid/soft matter interface, molecular biophysics, and biologically inspired systems.
