Research in this group falls into three categories:
Quantum Disordered Systems – with research topics including, quantum chaos, quantum tunnelling, short-wavelength approximations in optics, random matrix theory, Anderson localisation, multifractality, random energy landscapes.
Quantum Gravity – researching topics such as spin foam models of quantum gravity, quantum gravity in 2+1 spacetime dimensions, non-communicative geometry, quantum black holes, modified gravity, averaging methodsin contstrained quantisation.
Quantum Information – encompassing the study of non-classical correlations in multipartite quantum systems, quantum cryptography, quantum computation and quantum statistics.
Conferences and seminars:
Postgraduate students are encouraged to participate in the many School research-related activities, and attend appropriate national and international conferences. We also offer a diverse range of research seminars, which you are welcome to attend.
Research students also have access to specialised mathematical training courses such as those provided by the Academy for PhD Training in Statistics (APTS) or the Mathematics Access Grid Conferencing (MAGIC) group who run courses using videoconferencing technology.
The school has active research groups in many branches of Applied Mathematics (comprising Mathematical Physics and Theoretical Mechanics), Pure Mathematics and Statistics. It is also host to the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology. Much of the research undertaken is multidisciplinary and crosses traditional boundaries.
The taught masters programmes offered in the school have been carefully designed to reflect our research strengths and are being constantly informed and updated by the work taking place in our research groups.
