Mathematical Modelling is a key contributor in many, perhaps almost every, branch of science, engineering, technology, medicine as well as architecture, planning, commerce, arts, humanities and much more. Mathematical Modelling is also closely involved in the department’s links with industry, outreach activities and indeed any connection with the real world. So it is not surprising that this research group includes a large number of members from other groups in the department. The research overlaps in particular with that in applied analysis, financial mathematics, fluids, mathematical biology, numerical/computation, mathematical physics. In addition research studies are undertaken in this group on modelling for such diverse topics as security and screening issues, crime propagation, social dynamics, spatial analysis, biochemical engineering applications, industrial projects, sand and dust movement, crowd behaviour, sediment transport, fire spreading, combustion safety, food sorting, Olympic cycling, ice formation on aircraft, melting and solidification problems. The mathematics inherent in these studies covers a very wide range indeed of applied mathematics.
