Course Summary

The project will be shaped by your participation in research activities such as seminars, workshops, laboratory activity and field work, as well as your involvement in one of our established research groups. Mathematics at Swansea hosts one of the strongest research groups in probability theory in the UK, especially in stochastic processes. Senior members of the group are world leaders in their fields. Our research groups include:

• Algebra and Topology

Areas of interest – noncommutative geometry, categorical methods in algebra and

topology, homotopy theory and homological algebra.

• Analysis and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations Areas of interest – reaction-diffusion and reaction-diffusion-convection, equations and systems, Navier–Stokes equations in fluid dynamic.

• Stochastic Analysis Areas of interest – functional inequalities and applications, Lévy-type processes, stochastic modelling of fractal, multifractal and multiscale systems.

• Mathematical methods in Biology and Life Sciences Areas of interest – mathematical pharmacology; heat and mass transfer models for plant cooling; modelling cellular signal transduction dynamics, mathematical oncology.
