Analysis and Differential Equations

Analysis is concerned with quantifying change, continuity and approximation. It is the branch of mathematics that studies the notionof limit, and the infinite and the infinitesimal.

Differential equations provide much of the mathematical language used to describe the physical world around us; they emerge naturally in many mathematical contexts as well, for example in differential geometry.

Research in analysis and differential equations at Bath covers a wide range of topics: the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations underlies much of the research and provides links.

There is a lively research environment including the Analysis and Differential Equations Seminar, the Control Theory Seminar, and the Asymptotics, Operators and Functionals Seminar. The Analysis Group webpages contain further information on members of the group, our research, and events.
