Differential equations describe a wealth of phenomena in physics, environmental mechanics, biology and finance, wherever measurable quantities are continuously variable in space or time. Solutions of the equations are capable of predicting a wide range of behaviours, including periodicity, chaos, coherence, extinction, blow-up and bifurcation.
This group has worked on geometric and algebraic methods for solving and analysing ordinary and partial differential equations, as well as applications to mathematical physics and hydrology.
