Applied Mathematics is concerned with mathematical methods used in industry, science, business and engineering. Studying this subject at doctoral level is an opportunity to become an specialist in the mathematics that powers business and society.
As a researcher in the School of Mathematics and Physics, you have the opportunity to work with specialists in the field and may have the chance to develop national and international collaborations.
Research in the School follows two distinct strands: computational physics/applied mathematics and pure mathematics. Research in applied mathematics is focused on the development of numerical methods and algorithms for solving various equations found in materials science, specifically in the field of nanomaterials. This includes advanced parallelisation and adaptation of the methods for modern supercomputers.
