About

The PhD degree in Applied Mathematics from University of Birmingham usually involves a qualifying dissertation submitted during the second year of study, which is helpful training for writing the PhD thesis.

Overview

Training is provided through individual supervision of research, by advanced seminar courses and conferences, and by generic courses. 

The Applied Mathematics Research Group works on a wide variety of topics in a range of areas such as applied analysis, fluid mechanics, mathematical biology, financial mathematics and computational mathematics.

The research in applied analysis studies reaction-diffusion equations, nonlinear waves and perturbation theory. Inverse problems are also an active area of investigation. 

The area of fluid mechanics is a traditional research field in the School. Active research is pursued in the areas of bubble dynamics and biological and physiological fluid mechanics, dynamic wetting, flows with transitions in the topology of the flow domain, dynamics of liquid jets and drops, flows with phase transitions, fuel cells and many more. A School supercomputer is available for research. Research students' work often arises from industrially motivated problems or develops new directions in existing research projects.
