The Applied Mathematics Research Group is one of the largest and most forward-thinking in Canada. Research in this group spans a broad variety of modern topics in applied mathematics, ranging from numerical analysis and scientific computing to modelling and rigorous analysis. Most of this research focuses on nonlinear partial differential equations and their wide applications across the sciences. Numerical and computational topics include compressed sensing, computational fluid dynamics, numerical methods for PDEs on surfaces, image and signal processing, spectral methods, medical imaging, integral equation methods, and adaptive mesh methods. Topics in modelling and applied analysis include the study of differential equation models in areas such as atmospheric sciences, kinetic theory, fluid dynamics, cognitive science, mathematical biology and self-organizing behaviour, as well as computational spectral theory and convergence and error analysis of numerical methods.
Our department offers graduate programs (MSc and PhD) in the area of applied and computational mathematics. More information about these programs can be found on the graduate section of the department's website here: http://www.sfu.ca/math/graduate/programs.html. The applied mathematics group runs a weekly seminar on Fridays at 3:00pm. Information about upcoming talks can be found on the department's calendar of events on the home page here: http://www.sfu.ca/math.html or through the link below.
