Research Projects (for prospective PhD and M.Sc. 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.
