Computational mathematics

This internationally recognised group represents computational modelling in every area of technology and science.

Students studying on computers in the business school computer lab.

Areas of special focus in computational mathematics include, advanced methods for differential and integral equations, and algorithms for high dimensional problems. Academic and research staff in the group make extensive use of high performance computing and advanced visualisation, in combination with modern analysis. 

Research interests

  • High dimensional integration, quasi Monte-Carlo methods, complexity.
  • Approximation and cubature on the sphere.
  • Computational approaches to PDEs and boundary integral equations.
  • Direct and inverse scattering.
  • Adaptive methods for elliptic and parabolic problems.
  • Iterative methods and preconditioners for PDEs.
  • Algorithms for high performance (parallel) computers.
  • Uncertainty quantification; PDE with random coefficients.
  • (stochastic) Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation and control theory.
