Project Detail

The study of statistical properties in dynamical systems is currently one of the most active branches of research in ergodic theory. For deterministic dynamical systems, such properties have been established for various classes of systems, including the famous Lorenz attractor. The goal of the project is to investigate how much of such properties persist when the system is subject to random perturbations, and how the statistics of the randomly perturbed system can be approximated via the statistics of the unperturbed one.

The research will be conducted at the Department of Mathematical Sciences which has 32 full time academic staff, most of their research is associated with nonlinear dynamics. This includes integrable systems, dynamical systems, ergodic theory, stochastic systems, nonlinear PDEs, biological systems, waves and vortices in geophysical fluid dynamics. Moreover, there are various key research facilities, infrastructure and equipment which will benefit the student.

Here is a list of such facilities:
HPC Midlands, a supercomputing facility at Loughborough University to process vast quantities of data.

Mathematics Access Grid Instruction and Collaboration: MAGIC: this is a consortium of 20 UK University Mathematics Departments that share PhD level mathematics courses via live video conferencing.

Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park, an industrial park at the heart of the University.

Loughborough University Staff Development, which provides a diverse range of training, development and leadership courses.
