Applied and computational mathematics
Our theme works on core research topics in modern applied and computational mathematics.
We offer PhD training in the broad area of applied and computational mathematics including mathematical and computational modelling, numerical analysis, mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, machine learning, industrial mathematics, applied stochastic analysis etc. Our PhD projects are generally offered both through the MAC-MIGS 2024 PhD Collaborative Training Centre and through the Maxwell Institute Applied and Computational Mathematics theme as such.
Every student has access to subject specific learning opportunities, broader mathematical training, as well as a range of generic skills training.
Every student can access any of the mathematical & generic skills training activities offered by The Maxwell Institute Training Programme
This theme offers subject specific learning opportunities such as:
- Scottish Mathematical Sciences Training Centre (SMSTC) courses and high level undergraduate courses in applied and computational mathematics.
- MAC-MIGS 2024 Collaborative Training Centre
The applied and computational mathematics theme has a vibrant research community, enriched by a flow of academic visitors from all over the world.
We run weekly Seminars in Applied and Computational Mathematics throughout the academic year, inviting a range of speakers across a variety of research areas.
