Waves and Continuum Mechanics
The group carries out research in a diverse range of areas in Applied Mathematics including asymptotic analysis of partial differential equations, wave propagation and scattering in inhomogeneous media, cloaking, metamaterials, homogenisation, dynamic fracture, phononics, and platonics.
Our research is highly interdisciplinary and often finds application in a wide variety of fields from healthcare, to the oil industry, civil engineering, and geophysics. We have strong collaborative links with both industry, other institutions, and NHS Trusts.
The group consistently attracts significant funding from the EPSRC and ERC and contributes to the EPSRC Liverpool Centre for Mathematics in Healthcare.
Our main research areas are as follows:
