Imperial College London

Course Introduction

This course will provide students with the opportunity to learn a core of advanced pure and applied mathematics, together with a range of more specialised options. These will equip students with a range of mathematical skills in problem solving, project work and presentation. This will enable students to take a prominent role in a wide spectrum of employment and research.

Course Modules

Modules include: continuum mechanics: high reynolds number flow and boundary layer theory; inviscid flow; hydrodynamic stability; mathematical biology; viscous flow; vortex mechanics; waves. Non'linear dynamics: bifurcation theory; chaos and predictability; dynamics and symmetry; geometry, mechanics and symmetry; introduction to chaos. Numerical analysis and advanced mathematical methods: advanced ordinary differential equations; advanced techniques for differential and integral equations; homogenisation theory for partial differential equations; mathematical theory of the finite element method; numerical solution of ordinary differential equations; techniques for complex variable theory, matched asymptotic expansions in applied mathematics. Mathematical physics and theory of complex systems: special relativity and electromagnetism; quantum mechanics; general relativity; theory of complex systems; statistical mechanics.

Course Additional Entry

2.1 Honours degree in mathematics, applied mathematics or a related subject, such as engineering or physics.
