  • Application Deadline
    Friday, January 31, 2020
  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Exeter in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter under the supervision of Dr Jimmy Tseng. For eligible students the studentship will cover UK/EU tuition fees plus an annual tax-free stipend of at least £15,009 for 3.5 years full-time, or pro rata for part-time study. The student would be based in the Department of Mathematics at the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the Streatham Campus in Exeter and would part of two research groups within the department: the Number Theory, Geometry and Algebra group and the Dynamical systems and Analysis group.

Project Description:
In recent years, there has been much growth in the applications of dynamical systems to number theory, leading to a greater understanding of and solutions to some outstanding problems in number theory. This project, which will be concerned with dynamical systems, especially certain systems preserving a measure such as diagonal flows on homogeneous spaces, and the subfield of number theory called Diophantine approximation, will be part of this growth. The student will study the basics of dynamical systems and Diophantine approximation and will employ tools from these fields to study the behaviour of orbits and the interpretation of this behaviour in terms of Diophantine approximation. In particular, the student will focus on Farey sequences and their generalisations or related topics.

This award provides annual funding to cover UK/EU tuition fees and a tax-free stipend. For students who pay UK/EU tuition fees the award will cover the tuition fees in full, plus at least £15,009 per year tax-free stipend. Students who pay international tuition fees are eligible to apply, but should note that the award will only provide payment for part of the international tuition fee and no stipend.

The studentship will be awarded on the basis of merit for 3.5 years of full-time study to commence in September 2020.
