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 approximate solutions to be found. In this project the aim would be to look at a range of perturbation methods and the types of problems to which they can be applied.

The project would be mainly analytical although it could involve some numerical work.
