Numerical Analysis

Numerical analysis is the study of algorithms for the problems of continuous mathematics, that is, problems involving real or complex variables. For such problems exact, closed-form solutions usually do not exist or are not readily obtainable, so numerical analysts develop and analyse algorithms that compute numerical approximations. The Manchester group works across the spectrum from theory to algorithms to developing open source software. Our research focuses particularly on Finite Element Approximation, Numerical Algorithms and Software Development, Numerical Linear Algebra, Numerical Linear Algebra and Solvers for PDEs, Optimization and Compressive Sensing, Stochastic Differential Equations and Uncertainty Quantification.

Entry requirements

Applicants would usually be expected to have a 1st or Upper 2nd class Bachelor Honours Degree and an MSc degree with Merit or Distinction or a 1st class MMath (or an equivalent overseas qualification) in a mathematical subject. In some research areas a background in physics, engineering or computer science is also acceptable. All applicants for postgraduate study should have a very good command of written and spoken English. Students whose first language is not English require a minimum score of IELTS 6.5 with at least 6.0 in writing and 5.5 in each other component or equivalent. Students should normally have a minimum of IELTS 5.0 or equivalent prior to application. International students will be required to apply for an ATAS clearance certificate for this course.
