The research group in Applied and Computational Mathematics, which has achieved the top 5* rating at the last two RAE's, is very active with interests spanning a range of exciting areas. These include:
- applied dynamical systems,
- computational mathematics,
- mathematical biology,
- mathematical physics,
- pattern formation,
- turbulence and fluid mechanics.
The group has many interactions with the rest of the Mathematics Department and other departments within the University on a number of areas including stochastic analysis and probability, the MIR@W Programme, the Complexity Complex, the Department of Computer Science, the Centre for Scientific Computing, the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP), Financial Mathematics, and Molecular Organisation and Assembly in Cells (MOAC), to name but a few. Weekly the group holds either a seminar or a larger meeting (MIR@W day) devoted to a topic in the applications of mathematics.
Students may be admitted as regular students in the Mathematics Department, through the MIR@W programme, or through the Doctoral Training Centres (DTCs) in Complexity, MOAC, Scientific Computing, Systems Biology and Mathematics and Statistics (MASDOC).
