Description


Mathematics Project  You'll be able to make a detailed investigation into one topic of mathematics, which will help you develop your skills in finding information from a variety of sources and in writing and talking about mathematics.


Further Linear Algebra and Modules  The purpose of this course is to cover some further topics in linear algebra, such as Euclidean domains, and to familiarise you with the modules.


Mathematics in the Classroom  This course will help you develop a range of communication and teaching skills appropriate to a particular Key Stage and teach you how to act as a role model to pupils. You'll also gain confidence in communicating mathematics as well as learn how to develop projects and teaching methods suitable for school children.


Number Theory  You'll become acquainted with some of the elementary tools used to analyse the additive and multiplicative structures of the set of integers.


NonLinear Dynamical Systems  The aim of this course is to introduce you to the fundamentals of the analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems and, in particular, to investigate whether the behaviour of a nonlinear system can be predicted from the corresponding linear system.


Applied Probability  You'll become familiarised with a range of examples of probabilistic methods used to model systems that exhibit random behaviour.


Error Correcting Codes  This course will provide an introduction to the theory of error correcting codes employing the methods of elementary enumeration, linear algebra and finite fields.


Complexity Theory  You'll be introduced to the technical skills needed to help you understand the different classes of computational complexity, to recognise when different problems have different computational hardness and to be able to deduce cryptographic properties of related algorithms and protocols.


Quantum Theory II  On this course, you'll cover variational principles in quantum mechanics, perturbation theory, the electron's spin, radiative transitions and scattering theory.


Advanced Financial Mathematics  You'll investigate the validity of various linear and nonlinear time series occurring in finance. The course also extends the use of stochastic calculus to interest rate movements and credit rating.

MT4660 
Public Key Cryptography  This course introduces you to some of the mathematical ideas essential for an understanding of public key cryptography, such as discrete logarithms, lattices and elliptic curves.


Applications of Field Theory  You'll be introduced to some of the basic theory of field extensions, with special emphasis on applications in the context of finite fields.
