## Bayesian Methods for Analysing Historic Data

This project will concern (Bayesian) models for the survival time of historic populations.  Such models can provide interesting historical insights.  For example, we can understand how survival times have increased

## Dynamic Social Media Information Extraction

This project concerns the extraction of information from Social Media such as Facebook and Twitter. It will develop methodology to provide an understanding of how sentiments expressed on social media

## Divergent Series

This project is for a student who finds the following result shocking but intriguing: 1 + 2 + 3 + . . . = -1/12 This looks wrong in so

## The Numerical Solution of the p-Laplace Equation in a Geometry with Sharp Corners

Certain types of fluids do not respond in a linear way to external forces – they are called non-Newtonian fluids. A simple model of a non-Newtonian fluid which is widely

## Perturbation Methods

Perturbation methods are used to investigate solutions to mathematical problems in which exact solutions can’t be found but in which there is a parameter whose size (usually very small) allows

## The Inverted Pendulum

Why is it that a solid pendulum can be made to stand on its end when it’s other end is made to oscillate? This project will investigate the underlying mathematics

## Mondromy of Abelian Integrals

This project is related to the change in an complex integral as its defining parameters change. You will need to learn some theory about Riemann surfaces and integrals on them,

## Hilbert’s 10th Problem

How complicated can it be to find all the integer solutions to a set of polynomial equations? In fact, as complicated as you like! Given any output from a computer

## Algebraic Curves

We know that x2+y2=1 is the equation of a circle, but what happens when the degree of the equation is greater than two? In this project we investigate some of

## Symmetry Groups and Space

This project will look at the interplay between group theory and symmetry in different spaces. It is deliberately left open for you to explore the areas that you like best
