Program Description:

Our pure mathematics staff are prominent in two fields: functional analysis and geometric algebra. In analysis, one subgroup concentrates on operator theory and function theory, the other on more algebraic topics such as Banach algebras, cohomology and modules. In algebra there are subgroups devoted to the study of infinite groups and the study of finite classical groups and their geometries (Dr M Dritschel, Dr J Britnell, Dr A Duncan, Professor P Jorgensen, Dr O King, Dr Z Lykova, Professor S Rees, Professor G Robertson, Dr A Vdovina, Dr M White). Our applied mathematics staff have research interests in fluid mechanics, astrophysics and cosmology. In fluid dynamics, research is undertaken in numerical modelling of quantum, classical and astrophysical fluids. In quantum fluids we have experts in the properties of superfluid liquid Helium and Bose-Einstein condensates. Research in astrophysical fluids covers areas as diverse as the Earth’s core, planetary dynamos, acretion discs and galaxies. In cosmology, our main interests are in the very early universe and quantum gravity (Professor C Barenghi, Dr P Bushby, Dr C Campbell, Dr A Fletcher, Professor R Johnson, Professor I Moss, Dr N Proukakis, Dr G Sarson, Professor A Shukurov, Dr D Toms). The School provides funding for attending conferences. You may also supplement your income with marking and other teaching support work. Our Science, Agriculture and Engineering Graduate School provides training in professional/key skills and research techniques, supports personal development, hosts postgraduate events and has links with several specialist graduate training networks.
