Accurate and efficient scientific computations lie at the heart of most cross-discipline collaborations. It is key that such computations are performed in a stable, efficient manner and that the numerics converge to the true solutions, dynamics of the physics, chemistry or biology in the problem.
The programme closely follows the structure of our Applied Mathematical Sciences MSc and will equip you with the skill to perform efficient accurate computer simulations in a wide variety of applied mathematics, physics, chemical and industrial problems.
Students will take a total of 8 courses, 4 in each of the 1st and 2nd Semesters followed by a 3-month Project in the summer. A typical distribution for this programme is as follows:
Modelling and Tools; Stochastic Simulation; Applied Linear Algebra; Numerical Analysis;
Simulation of Granular Flow and Growing Sandpiles; Finite Element Discretisation of ODEs and PDEs; Domain Decomposition; Computational Spectral Theory; Mathematical Modelling of Crime; Mathematical Modelling of Micro-electron Mechanical Systems. Can we Trust Eigenvalues on a Computer?
The final part of the MSc is an extended project in computational mathematics, giving the opportunity to investigate a topic in some depth guided by leading research academics from our 5-rated mathematics and statistics groups.
