Project Description

Front propagation is ubiquitous throughout science and beyond, from the invasion of species in population dynamics to the switching properties of liquid crystals to the spread of rumours, and is often modelled mathematically using initial-value problems and travelling waves for systems of reaction-diffusion equations and their non-local variants. This very active field enjoys a rich interplay between challenging interdisciplinary questions that lead to novel and deep mathematical results. In this project, we will investigate spreading speeds and travelling waves in models arising in a variety of topical applications using state-of-the-art techniques in the analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations.

Entry requirements

Candidates must have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, or an appropriate Master’s degree (with Merit). Informal enquiries are welcome by emailing the project supervisor.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.0 (with 5.5 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.
