Applied mathematics

Much of applied mathematics is concerned with solving challenging equations that describe interesting and important problems, and there is ample scope for a wide range of appealing PhD topics.

As well as conducting research in the foundations of applied mathematics, the Department also undertakes research in a variety of multidisciplinary settings. It has excellent connections with many other disciplines, including pure mathematics and statistics within the School of Mathematics, and astronomy, biology, computer science, earth sciences, engineering, environment, food science and physics within the University, as well as links with industry.
