Course Summary

We invite MPhil proposals in any of our research areas. In Pure Mathematics our two main fields are functional analysis and geometric algebra. In Applied Mathematics our research is predominantly in fluid mechanics, astrophysics and cosmology. As a research postgraduate in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics you will be working under the supervision of an expert in your chosen field. You will receive a tailored package of academic and support elements to ensure you maximise your research and future career. The academic information is in the programme profile and you will be supported by our Postgraduate Researcher Development Programme and Research Student Support Team.

Within each field of Pure Mathematics there are multiple subgroups. In analysis, one subgroup concentrates on operator theory and function theory, the other on Banach algebras, cohomology and modules. In algebra there are subgroups devoted to the study of infinite groups, and finite classical groups and their geometries. Our Applied Mathematics staff have research interests in: fluid dynamics, including numerical modelling of quantum fluids (superfluid liquid Helium and Bose-Einstein condensates); classical and astrophysical fluids (the Earth's core, planetary dynamos, accretion discs and galaxies) and cosmology, including the very early universe and quantum gravity.
