Project Description

Research on this theme is characterised by a combination of functional and harmonic analysis with classical real and complex analysis, special functions and the asymptotic analysis of differential equations. Although the main emphasis is on developing the mathematical techniques, the operators studied are typically related to questions of theoretical physics; objects of current interest include Dirac operators, occurring in relativistic quantum mechanics and, without a mass term, in the description of the electronic properties of new materials such as graphene, as well as non-linear variants of the Schrödinger operator.
The questions to be studied concern the position and asymptotic distribution of eigenvalues as well as the properties of continuous spectral measures; in the case of the non-linear operators, even the definition and interpretation of such measures is an open question.

Funding Notes

UK Research Council eligibility conditions apply.
Full awards (UK/EU fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least three years prior to the start of the course for which they are seeking funding, including for the purposes of full-time education.
