Applied Mathematics

Applied Mathematics is about using the theory and techniques of mathematics and statistics to understand and deal with the real world.

World may mean the physical world (for example, weather forecasting), or it may mean human-created activities (such as financial mathematics).

Biological and physical sciences, computing, commerce, medicine, manufacturing industry and environmental management are some of the fields which need to connect with mathematics and its the job of the applied mathematician to make the connections.


Peter Chapman deceased (a former member of the school) has produced a large volume of research material that has not been published. It can be accessed here.
