Computational Mathematics

Computation has become an essential tool in both experimental and theoretical advancement of science and engineering. Numerical simulation allows us to study complex systems that would be too expensive, dangerous or impossible to investigate experimentally. It is also the basis of qualifications in areas as varied as weather forecasting, financial analysis, risk management and climate change. The constant advance in computer hardware and simulation algorithms allows ever greater details and realism in computer output. Mathematics at Sussex has a very strong numerical analysis and computational mathematics component. Our faculty will introduce you to the theory and practice of state-of-the-art computational methods. Links with local industry (ranging from engineering to financial companies) further enhance our course. This course is aimed at those who have an interest in applied mathematics, computational sciences and technology; this course is for you if you are looking to move into industry or mathematical finance, or to pursue further studies such as a PhD in applied mathematics or sciences.
