Research Projects (for prospective PhD and MSc students, and as 4th year projects)
Several projects are available related to the mathematical theory of
flame propagation, a fascinating multidisciplinary area of applied
mathematics involving ordinary and partial differential equations. The
approach will typically adopt a combination of analytical techniques
(asymptotic methods) and/or numerical techniques (solution of ODEs or
PDEs, mostly parabolic and elliptic). The multidisciplinary experience
in combustion involved will be useful for tackling research problems in
other fields of application, and wil constitute a valuable asset for
jobs in industry (such as the automobile or the aerospace industry).
Depending on the preference of the candidate, each of the projects can
be tailored in its scope and the methodology of study.
