Student projects

We have a wide range of potential research topics. They range from short term PhB projects, to year long Honours and graduate projects and three year PhD projects.
Contact your supervisor for further discussion and ideas.

Understanding how faults slip during an earthquake is still a grand challenge in seismology.

As we move into exascale computing, and beyond, the chance of a fault occurring in the system increases. Traditional approaches to building resilience into the system, such as check-pointing, may become too expensive.

Why are the trace and the determinant of a matrix special, as opposed to some other random function of the matrix entries? Why should the discriminant $b^2-4ac$ play a fundamental role, and not, say $a^2+4bc$? One answer (among many) is that the trace, the determinant, and the discriminant are distinguished functions
