Our group focuses on applied mathematics, numerical analysis, combinatorics and topology, and mathematical physics.
For more information about our research activity, select individual researchers' names below.
Our research combines diverse aspects of modelling and analysis. We are developing and studying mathematical models of varied applications, including blood flow, powder flow and hydrothermal eruptions, and advancing theoretical aspects of dynamical systems and differential equations. More information can be found here.
Our work concerns the development of robust, rapid and accurate methods for the numerical solution of ordinary and partial differential equations. Specific areas of interest include geometric integration and domain decomposition methods.
Our research involves the application of combinatorial techniques to problems ranging from the scheduling of sports tournaments to the study of knots and links in three and higher dimensions.
We study the physical processes governing biological systems. Consistent with the agri-food focus of the Manawatū campus, the research has ranged from the gasification of biomass, to combating the electrocution of whales. Much of the work has been in association with veterinary colleagues. Image analysis is an expanding area of interest.
We are using powerful mathematical techniques to investigate problems in physics, biophysics and interdisciplinary areas. The main focus is on theoretical particle physics, particularly the quark structure of matter and the properties of neutrinos.
