A fully funded 3-and-a-half year PhD position is available in the Department of Mathematics in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Sussex.
Real-world systems in socio-economics and life sciences often consist of a large number of interacting individuals. These interactions frequently result in formation of complex patterns and collective behaviour, such as aggregation or segregation. Typical real-world applications are congestion models, population dynamics, price and opinion forming.
For large numbers of individuals following the individual dynamics is inefficient and may even be prohibitive. But mathematical methods from kinetic theory and mean-field models allow to describe and analyse the statistical distribution of the individuals and derive macroscopic quantities from them. Then, suitable limit partial differential equations which govern these quantities can be derived, analysed and solved numerically.
