Structured PhD (Applied Mathematics) full-time

College of Science,
School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics

Course overview

All PhD students in the College of Science will enroll in a Structured PhD


The research activity of the discipline covers a range of topics in both Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, with a particular emphasis on dynamical systems theory, quantum field theory, conformal field theory and modeling and analysis of partial differential equations. Members of the discipline are involved in joint projects with other disciplines/research units within the University, and are also involved in a number of international collaborations.


Programmes available

(Structured PhD) Applied Mathematics - 4 years (full-time)

Entry requirements

To be eligible to enter on a programme of study and research for the degree of PhD you must have reached a high honours standard at the examination for the primary degree or presented such evidence as will satisfy the Head of School and the College of your fitness.

Areas of interest

  • Multibody system dynamics, numerical bifurcation analysis, piecewise smooth dynamical systems, biomathematics.
