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.

This project aims to give a basic introduction to String Theory, and the mathematical techniques required, by working through (part of) the undergraduate textbook "A First Course in String Theory" by Barton Zwiebach (Cambridge University Press, 2004).

A two dimensional Riemannian manifold is an abstract surface sitting nowhere in particular, but which somehow has the structures imposed on it that a surface gets by sitting in Euclidean space, such as tangent spaces, a metric etc.

The aim of the project is to learn about equivariant stable homotopy theory, and go through as much of the Hill, Hopkins and Ravenel proof as possible.

Morse theory is a branch of differential topology. Equipping a manifold with a generic real-valued function allows one to use differential techniques to study fundamental topological properties of the manifold.
