This course is designed to build on your existing mathematical skills and allows you to broaden and deepen your understanding of the branch or branches of mathematics which most interest you.
The flexibility of this course allows you to either keep your studies quite broad, learning a range of mathematical techniques, or specialise in areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics or statistics depending on your interests. These can range from algebra, analysis and logic to financial mathematics, fluid dynamics and mathematical biology.
In this course, you have the freedom to focus on the topics in mathematics that interest you the most. You could choose to specialise in a particular area of study, or gain a broad knowledge of a variety of disciplines chosen from applied, pure and statistical mathematics.
There is a range of taught modules to choose from, providing the opportunity to combine mainstream, advanced mathematical topics and innovative methods relating to the research interests of the School of Mathematics.
A dissertation in mathematics will account for 60 credits of your final mark on this course. This is an opportunity for you to pursue a particular topic in-depth: your supervisor will help you to find a project that matches your interests and motivations for studying this degree.
Some examples of past projects include:
· Cluster Algebras
· Nonstandard Analysis
· Combustion Waves
· Planetary Motion in General Relativity
