School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics

Course overview

The research activity of the discipline covers a range of topics in both Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, with a particular emphasis on dynamical systems theory, quantum field theory, conformal field theory and modeling and analysis of partial differential equations. Members of the discipline are involved in joint projects with other disciplines/research units within the University, and are also involved in a number of international collaborations.

What Our Students Say

VO Thi

VO Thi Ngoc Tuoi |   Applied Mathematics

Being a PhD student in Applied Mathematics has given me a golden chance of gaining in-depth knowledge and experience. The purpose of my project is to develop and analyze mathematical model governing the diffusion of a drug through a polymer-coated stent used for the prevention of restenosis. After my study, I could pursue a career in the biomedical device industry or in academia.
