Proper general decomposition for convection-diffusion equations

You will learn about different methods for discretising partial differential equations and iterative methods for solving the resulting systems of algebraic equations.

You will learn about techniques for analysing the convergence of numerical approximations. There will also be an element of scientific computing and the student will develop programming skills using MATLAB, C++ etc.

This project will develop new numerical discretizations for solving PDEs that can subsequently be applied to problems in fluid mechanics and will build on current expertise in the School.

The School of Mathematics has a strategy to expand applied and computational mathematics recognising the potential for interdisciplinary collaboration across the University.

We are interested in pursuing this project and welcome applications if you are self-funded or have funding from other sources, including government sponsorships or your employer.

Please contact the supervisor when you want to pursue this project, citing the project title in your email, or find out more about our PhD programme in Mathematics.
