About

The Analysis research group from The University of Edinburgh is one of the UK’s top centres for research in the field, especially in linear and nonlinear PDEs and harmonic analysis.

Overview

Your passion for mathematical analysis will be rewarded by contact with, and supervision by, world-leading academic staff, a rich seminar and working group programme and ultimately a qualification that boasts an internationally respected pedigree.

The School of Mathematics is a vibrant community of more than 60 academic and related staff supervising 60 students.

The Analysis research group from The University of Edinburgh has a unique focus on the interplay of classical Euclidean harmonic analysis with the modern theory of PDEs. We study harmonic analytic ideas in number theory, geometric measure theory, combinatorics, and discrete geometry and geometrically invariant inequalities; and we investigate applications of harmonic analysis to elliptic and parabolic PDEs with rough coefficients and/or on rough domains.

We also study:

  • nonlinear hyperbolic, dispersive and kinetic equations and systems arising in the classical field theories of mathematical physics, mathematical biology and, in connection with black holes, mathematical general relativity
  • free-boundary problems, optimal mass transportation and Monge-Ampère equations in nonlinear elasticity and other continuum theories
  • well-posedness for supercritical initial value problems with noisy initial data

Programme Structure

  • Mathematics is a discipline of high intellect with connections stretching across all the scientific disciplines and beyond, and in Edinburgh you can be certain of thriving in a rich academic setting. 

  • Our School is one of the country’s largest mathematics research communities in its own right, but you will also benefit from Edinburgh’s high-level collaborations, both regional and international.

  • Research students will have a primary and secondary supervisor and the opportunity to network with a large and varied peer group. You will be carrying out your research in the company of eminent figures and be exposed to a steady stream of distinguished researchers from all over the world.
