Structured PhD (Applied Mathematics) full-time
College of Science,
School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics
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 particular emphasis on dynamical systems, numerical methods, quantum computation, conformal field theory, modelling and mathematics of biology. Members of the discipline are involved in joint projects with other disciplines and research units within the University, such as the Stokes Cluster for Applied Mathematics (link to http://maths.nuigalway.ie/stokes), the Complex Systems Research Centre (link to http://www.nuigalway.ie/core), the National Centre for Biomedical Engineering Science (link to http://ncbes.nuigalway.ie), or the Biomechanics Research Centre (link to http://www.nuigalway.ie/bmec).
Areas of interest
- Elastic waves and stability, nonlinear solid biomechanics;
