Scientific Computation

Member of staff in the George Green Library

Scientific Computation is a vibrant research group with extensive expertise in numerical analysis, scientific computing, and mathematical modelling.

Scientific computation and numerical analysis are concerned with the design and mathematical analysis of computational algorithms used within a variety of application areas, including engineering, physics, biology, chemistry, and finance. 

Research areas include:

  • Computational PDEs (high-order finite element and discontinuous Galerkin methods, Virtual Element Method, adaptivity, a posteriori error analysis)
  • Multiscale modelling and computation
  • Computational fluid mechanics and electromagnetics
  • Free and moving boundary problems
  • Computational biology and medicine
  • Bayesian inverse problems
  • Uncertainty quantification
  • Stochastic numerics and stochastic modelling

Students at the University of Nottingham can join our Student Chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) for free.
