Course content

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.

The MSc, has at its core, fundamental courses in pure mathematics and students will be able to take options from both pure and applied mathematics.

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:

Core courses

Modelling and Tools;
Functional Analysis;
Partial Differential Equations;
Pure Mathematics (recommended).

Optional Courses

Mathematical Ecology;
Optimization;
Numerical Analysis of ODEs;
Applied Mathematics;
Dynamical Systems;
Stochastic Simulation;
Applied Linear Algebra;
Partial Differential Equations;
Numerical Analysis;
Bayesian Inference and Computational Methods;
Geometry.

Typical project subjects

Domain Decomposition;
Mathematical Modelling of Crime;
The Geometry of Point Particles;
Can we Trust Eigenvalues on a Computer?;
Braess Paradox;
The Ising Model: Exact and Numerical Results;
Banach Alegbras.

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.
